Château Pichon Comtesse cuvée Réserve 2017 (AOC Pauillac)

Entering Pauillac transports you in a very exciting universe, that thousand-year-old of Bordeaux wine. On the left bank, it is prudent to prepare your visit, especially if you wish to visit Château Pichon Longueville, one of those castles that the whole world knows. Its cuvée Réserve, also well known, but not to be confused with the 2nd cru classé, is an assemblage of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon – 36% Merlot and the rest is shared by Cabernet Franc and Little Verdot.

This 2nd wine from Château Pinchon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has a medium-high opacity typical of the left bank with a logical evolved meniscus. An evolved nose showing hints of moss, liquorice, undergrowth, cocoa and tertiary aromas, eclipsing the primary aromas. Dry and wide entry in the mouth. Development with still good freshness. Balanced aromas in the mouth between a still young fruit and an evolution (ink, butchery and spice). The notes of its 12 month in barrel (4o% news) aging are very well integrated. Dry. A long finish with still liveliness for a delicious wine.

This blog has already talked about its 2nd grand cru classé in the official classification of Bordeaux wine that took place in Paris in 1855, demanded by the emperor of the 2nd French Republic Napoleon III Bonaparte. The price, very much at the level of a great Pauillac wine, remains at 45.38 euros (no, in this blog we do not sell, we only recommend). As a pairing, any banquet worthy of an emperor or king will do, but we are going to keep it simple: try this reserve with a Blood sausace, Bordelaise sauce, maple braised red cabbage, apple, mashed potatoes.
