The Pichon Comtesse de Lalande team has produced a superb Réserve in 2020. As is the norm, Merlot is at the core of this Second Wine, accounting for 47% of the blend, bringing notable power with ample, dense fruitiness. 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 10% Petit Verdot bring depth of colour and fruit intensity, along with linear structure, to complement the Merlot fleshiness. The wine is currently ageing for 12 months in oak barrels, of which 40% are new. Colour is impressive purple, aromas being perfumed, floral, with intense ripe fruitiness. This is a sumptuous, fleshy mouthful, with silky textures, combined with an elegant, fine structure. Tannins are smooth and bring freshness, the finish being ripe and long flavoured (for drinking 2025–2032+).
