The second growth of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, the Réserve de la Comtesse, was created and sold for the first time in 1973. Second growths represent between 20 percent and 50 percent of the total production of the Château. From the same soil, the second growth benefits from the technology and reputation of the great wine. The archives kept at Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande mention the existence of a second wine as early as the 19th century.

The vast majority of the vineyards are Gunzian gravel mounds of the classic Pauillac composition, with the deep bed of gravel placed over a substrata of clay and limestone. The commitment to sustainable farming practices extends throughout the 220 acres of vineyards, with over 27 acres fully converted to organic viticulture, and 37 acres farmed biodynamically.

Winemaker Notes

Nicolas Glumineau

Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Reserve de la Comtesse

by Nicolas Glumineau
The 2020 vintage is showing notes of liquorice and fruits on the nose. The palate is very expressive and full of flavor such as blackberry, raspberry, tobacco and cedar. It is well-balanced, long, and intense, with velvety tannins and lingering notes of plum preserves.
