Thursday 13th February – The “Super-second star of Pauillac”.

The second growth, Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is regarded as one of the Left Bank’s most elegant wines.

Pauillac

Located in the east of the Pauillac appellation, its vineyards lie on deep gravel beds underpinned by clay, marl and limestone, which benefit from excellent drainage.

The vineyards lie in both Pauillac and Saint-Julien, and run down to the Gironde Estuary alongside Château Latour. While Pauillac’s wines are known for their power, Pichon Lalande expresses a more feminine and sensual style. The château is known as a super-second and was recently singled out as a first growth contender by Jane Anson. It was bought by the Rouzaud family of Roederer champagne in 2007 and they have invested substantially in both the winemaking facilities and the vineyards.

Nicolas Glumineau, Directeur Général, who joined in 2012 from Château Montrose, will be hosting a vertical of this celebrated estate, including all the classic vintages back to 1982, a year which was described by Robert Parker as “One of the monumental wines of the last century. Since bottling, it has flirted with perfection,” 100 points.
