BRANDChâteau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande
Deep, dark, purple-red color, is not quite opaque. The aromas are of black fruit overlaid by graphite. On the palate cassis fruit is lifted by lovely fresh acidity & melded with intense graphite notes.
There are hints of toasty oak. Even the structure alcohol is balanced & the finish is long & lean.
