Description

Château Pichon Lalande is considered one of the great properties in the Medoc on the Left Bank in Bordeaux and is regarded as a true ‘super second’. Château Pichon Lalande has a cult following throughout the world and is considered one of the most in demand wines coming out of Bordeaux.

Château Pichon Lalande is a wine well received by the critics, with our benchmark critic Neal Martin scoring the wine 94 points when he retasted in February 2020. He comments;

“The 2017 Pichon-Lalande has closed down a little on the nose since it was bottled late June. But it is still very well defined, quite Cabernet-influenced with cedar and graphite aromas emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. It is a very lithe Pichon-Lalande that in some ways harks back to the fleshier vintages of the past. There is something “sedate” and self-effacing about this 2017, and that is meant in a good way. Harmonious, refined, almost effortless and probably medium rather than long-term drinking. Drink 2022-2045.”

Château Pichon Lalande also received solid scores from Lisa Perrotti Brown (96 points) and James Suckling (94 points).

We recommend this wine as an excellent wine to be part of your portfolio.
