2016 Pichon Lalande Released:
Hart Davis Hart Wine of the Vintage

The 2016 Pichon-Longueville, Lalande, another stunning super second, was released this morning. Our team was blown away by this excellent wine on our recent trip to Bordeaux and we agree with Antonio Galloni in that it "is arguably the single finest relative value in ageworthy wine in Bordeaux right now." The expressive nose, lucious mouthfeel, intense fruit, and well-integrated oak add up to a truly classic wine. Our good friend, CEO and Winemaker Nicolas Glumineau, is a rising star of Bordeaux who we believe has created his first “perfect” Pichon Lalande in 2016. We can't recommend the 2016 Lalande enough and we encourage you to act quickly to secure this beauty at first tranche prices.

"A deeply emotional, moving wine, the 2016 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is simply extraordinary. The tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit, while the 100% new oak is remarkably well integrated at this stage. Dark, powerful and brooding, the 2016 possesses remarkable polish for such a big wine. The purity of the flavors is simply captivating. Scents of graphite, smoke, leather, tobacco and menthol soar from the glass, enhancing a core of deep, plush, dark fruit. All the elements fuse together in a wine of nearly unparalleled beauty..." (97-100 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, April 2017
