Pichon Longueville Comptesse de Lalande


Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Appellation Pauillac Controlée

Location: The chateau sits on the east of the vineyard road in Pauillac, while most of the vineyards lie to the west between Pichon Baron and Haut Batailley.

Size: 150 acres producing 20,000 cases.

Classification: Second Growth

Grape varieties: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot.

Vinification: Classic methods brought to perfection by the finest modern technology.

History: In the 18th century, Pichon Lalande and Pichon Baron were one estate - among the finest in the Medoc. In the early 19th century, the vineyard was divided among the heirs of Baron Joseph de Pichon Longueville, creating Pichon Comtesse de Lalande and Pichon Baron. In the 1920's Pichon Lalande was purchased by a company run by Edward Miailhe. His daughter, Mai de Lencquesaing, has owned and managed the estate since 1978. She is widely credited with having raised Pichon Lalande's quality to one of the highest levels in the Medoc. The chateau and chai are now a showplace.

Style: Known for its soft and fleshy character due to the high proportion of Merlot, Pichon Lalande is a supple, fruity velvety wine which can be drunk while quite young.
