TASTING NOTES

"A dense and powerful second wine from PL with layers of fruit and ripe, silky tannins. Shows tension and verve as well as polish. Excellent." JamesSuckling.com
(JS, 04/04/2017)

Rating: 93-94


"Solid, featuring a juicy, fleshy core of cassis and plum fruit, backed by a well-embedded iron edge. The sleek, pure, driven finish extends nicely, with a lingering savory echo." Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Réserve de la Comtesse is a serious second wine. Dark, ample and voluptuous, the Comtesse will give readers a very good idea of the style and quality of the vintage, namely the interplay of fruit, aromatic freshness and tannin that makes this vintage so compelling. Inky dark and purplish fruit, chocolate, licorice and lavender are some of the notes that infuse the huge finish. Silky, polished tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. Don't miss it. Tasted three times." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Dense to smell, sweet and ripe and persistent, with a touch of Merlot pepper; rich, fresh, finely firm, very nicely constituted; sweet in fruit, subtly complex to taste, very long across the palate, with a touch of the green pepper (Merlot) character clear, but with a lovely length of aftertaste, too. A really fine Réserve de la Comtesse, a great second wine." Michael Schuster, The World of Fine Wine

"Polished and pleasurable. Not a single angle in evidence. What a wonderful wine this would be for an airline first class! But note relatively short drinking period." JancisRobinson.com
