Eine traumhaft schöne Comtesse

Wer liebt nicht die Comtesse? Wenn sich ein Wein charmant, dabei trotzdem kraftvoll und mit Pauillac-Struktur versehen, verlockend im Glas räkelt, dann muß es CHATEAU PICHON COMTESSE DE LALANDE sein. Ein absoluter Traumwein und das in unzählig vielen Jahrgängen. Seit NICOLAS GLUMINEAU auf diesem Gut agiert, geht hier so unglaublich die Post ab, dass den Nachbarn nur neidvolle Seitenblicke bleiben. So definitiv mit 2018 CHATEAU PICHON COMTESSE DE LALANDE. Steht man im Verkostungsraum auf Comtesse, hat man gute Aussicht auf die Nachbarn, auf den unmittelbaren Premier Cru Nachbarn blickend, wünscht man sich beide Seite an Seite im direkten Vergleich verkosten zu können, nicht mit einer halben Stunde Zeitdifferenz. Wir machen das in 10 oder 20 Jahren auf unserem Weihnachtstasting einmal! Wenn ein Wein im Jahrgang 2018 die Maximalnote erreichen muss, dann ist es die COMTESSE! Wir waren drei Mal auf dem Gut und waren jedes Mal hin und weg. So weich, so cremig, so unglaublich charmant, dabei so irre präzise geformt, mit Tanninen, Frucht und nahezu explosiver Frische und Mineralik, dabei Finesse bis zum Abwinken, dass man einfach nicht widerstehen kann, den Probeschluck einfach zu schlucken. So geschehen und es war wunderbar!   Wir können Ihnen deshalb nur zwingend ans Herz legen, sich die 2018er COMTESSE in den Keller zu packen. Das ist ein absolut ultimativer 2018er, der übrigens am Marktplatz Bordeaux bereits komplett geräumt ist, völlig zu Recht.     97-99 THE WINEADVOCATE:

"The grand vin represents 50% of the crop this year. The 2018 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is made up of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot with a pH of 3.85, an IPT (total polyphenol index) of 87 and 14% alcohol. Very deep purple-black colored, it is like hitting a brick wall to begin, needing considerable coaxing to start to reveal notes of crushed black cherries, warm blackberries, ripe blackcurrants and chocolate cake with nuances of violets, rose hip tea, charcuterie, tapenade and incense with wafts of new leather and iron ore. Full-bodied, concentrated and completely laden with tightly wound black fruit and savory layers, the palate gives a rock-solid backbone of firm, super ripe, super fine-grained tannins and soft background freshness, finishing very long with a veritable display of mineral fireworks." 96 FALSTAFF:
"Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Zart floral unterlegte schwarze Kirschfrucht, feines Cassis, ein Hauch von Orangenzesten. Saftig, komplex, extraktsüß, elegant, reife, tragende Tannine, feiner Nougat im Abgang, bleibt sehr gut haften, sicheres Reifepotenzial." 19,5 WEINWISSER:
"71?% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23?% Merlot, 5?% Cabernet Franc, 1?% Petit Verdot, 35?hl/ha, 60?% Grand Vin. Undurchsichtiges Purpur mit schwarzer Mitte und violettem Rand. Ein zartes Parfüm nach Wildkirschen und Veilchen sowie Nougatpralinen. Im zweiten Ansatz Lakritze, Cassis und Heidelbeeren. Am kräftigen Gaumen mit cremiger Textur, perfekt ausgereiften Tanninen und süssem Extrakt, unglaubliche Eleganz aufweisend, dann packt dieses Finessenpaket zu. Im katapultartigen, langanhaltenden Finale mit blauen Beeren, stützender Mineralik, Graphit, endet mit edler Bitterness, die dem Wein eine gewisse Arroganz verleiht. Ein grandioser Pauillac, der auch in diesem Jahr zum Besten in der Appellation gehört! Für Nicolas Glumineau ist der 2018er eine Kombination aus 1989, 2010 und 2016. Wird in der perfekten Genussreife die Maximalnote erreichen." 97-100 WINESPECTATOR:
"This one nails it in 2018, with saturated, almost sappy kirsch, plum and blackberry preserve flavors at the core, inlaid with sweet tobacco, singed vanilla, worn cedar and fresh earth notes. A bolt of graphite provides support. Concentrated, long and very complete. One of the high water marks of the vintage.—J.M." 96-98 WINE ENTHUSIAST:
"Ripe and stylish, it is elegance personified and will be a very fine wine to age. Its structure and tannins are generous yet gently handled, giving density while preserving the bright dark fruit flavors." 99 DECANTER:
"This has to be up there with one of the most seductive Comtesses on record with layers of alternating softness and concentration combined with a lot of 2016’s elegance and power. The nose on this stands out a mile, getting it right up on the podium before you even take a sip. Rich raspberries combine with peonies and curls of woodsmoke while the appellation’s signature slate, cedar, liquorice and tannic grip slowly builds up on the palate. I’ve tasted this several times with each conveying a juiciness and elegance that is quite different in style to many in Pauillac this year - it´s a 98-100 for me, and I´m already looking forward to re-tasting it in bottle. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 60% new oak used. 13% press wine. 3.75pH, 88IPT – higher even than the 80IPT in 2016." 98-99 JAMES SUCKLING:
"A deep and intense young red with blackberries and blueberries, as well as green olives and hints of fresh tobacco. But really black fruit. Full-bodied, tight and integrated with a refreshing and harmonious finish. Just floating on the palate. Great tannin backbone to this. A classic. Another flying carpet." 95-98 ANTONIO GALLONI:
"The 2018 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is powerful, dense and explosive, with a real sense of vertical lift that conveys energy. Grilled herbs, lavender, inky blue/purplish fruit and spice notes develop in the glass, but it is the wine´s balance, purity of tannin and finish that stand out most. In 2018, so many wines lean towards extreme versions of themselves, but Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande remains very much within its classic parameters. The 2018 doesn´t quite offer the visceral thrill of the very best recent vintages, but it comes very close. At its purest essence, the 2018 is very Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. The en primeur sample is shown from 100% new oak, although the wine will have about 60% new wood. Tasted four times." 18 VINUM:
"Hat es verstanden, trotz der wuchtigen Art des Jahres seine Harmonie zu halten, herrlich sanftes und doch mundfüllendes Tannin, grosse Frische und Geschmeidigkeit trotz der Tiefe, fleischiger Ausklang; einmal mehr hervorragend." 98-100 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER:
"Full-bodied, rich, powerful, dense, opulent and frankly, incredibly sexy, as well as structured, stylistically it feels like a blend of 2009 and 2016 with the best attributes of each vintage. This wine is sensual with firm tannins, vitality, length, complexity and vibrancy in the finish. Yes, the wine is high in alcohol. But there is no heat, jam or lack of freshness. Everything here is in balance. Lay this down for a decade and pour sensuality right into your glass. The wine will age effortlessly for decades. Is it better than the perfect 100 Pt. 2016? Maybe, maybe not. But I cannot wait to taste those two vintages side by side in a blind tasting. The wine combines 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot reaching 14% alcohol with a pH of 3.85. The picking took place September 13-October 11 and 50% of the crop was placed into the Grand Vin. The yields were low here this year at only 35 hectoliters per hectare." 96-98+ JEB DUNNUCK:
"The top wine is the 2018 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse De Lalande, a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot. Compared to the 2010 by director Nicolas Glumineau, this saturated purple-colored effort offers the classic elegance and regal style of the estate as well as plenty of pure Pauillac character. Crème de cassis, liquid violets, charcoal, and scorched earth nuances all give way to a full-bodied, deep, layered 2018 that has remarkable purity, building yet ultra-fine tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. It´s in the same class as the magical 2016, and while I suspect it will be approachable with just short-term cellaring, it´s going to age for 40 years or more. This estate has been on a qualitative roll over the past 5-6 years thanks to the talents of Glumineau, and this is unquestionably another great wine from him and his team."

ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2018 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande dazzles from the very first taste. A heady concoction of inky dark fruit, graphite, new leather, licorice, lavender, spice and grilled herbs soars out of the glass. The 2018 is rich and expansive yet retains a super-classic vertical feel. Plush, silky tannins add to its immeasurable pedigree. I would cellar the 2018 for a decade or so, if patience permits. It's a stellar wine in the making."
98
DECANTER: "Lovely grilled and graphite notes right off the bat; this is big and muscular, and extremely Pauillac. There is grace here too, with raspberry purée, cassis, fig and blackberry fruits set against charcoal and fine tannins that quickly build up to suggest how well this will age. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 60% new oak used. 13% press wine. 3.75pH, 88IPT – higher even than the 80IPT in 2016. Drinking Window 2026 - 2038"
97
FALSTAFF: "Sehr dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Einladende schwarze Fruchtnuancen von Beeren und Kirschen, feine Edelholzanklänge, zart nach kandierten Orangenzesten, mineralische Aspekte, etwas Lakritze. Komplex, extraktsüß, reife Herzkirschen, reife, tragende Tannine, feine Süße auch im Abgang, ein eleganter Speisenwein, ausgestattet mit großer Länge und Harmonie, sicheres Entwicklungspotenzial."
97
JAMES SUCKLING: "Aromas of blackberry, dried blueberry, gravel, mocha and cigar box. Light fresh-herb undertone. It’s full-bodied with firm, ultra fine tannins and fresh acidity. Focused and minerally with a long finish. Great length. Very tight and restrained at the moment. Wait until at least 2026 to take a look."
17,5
JANCIS ROBINSON: "Tasted blind. Richly nuanced deep crimson. Light nose but the suggestion that there is a lot there. Gentle and subtle with a glorious combination of ripe fruit and ripe tannin with freshness. Much less chewy than many others and already approachable, which perhaps forfeits half a point. But a lovely wine for now."
98+
JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2018 Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse De Lalande is a monster of a wine with an almost Château Latour-like stature and structure, offering deep, backward, slightly reductive notes of blackcurrants, crushed stone, scorched earth, lead pencil shavings, and tobacco leaf. Based largely on Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, it's full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful on the palate, with masses of tannins, beautiful mid-palate density, and a great finish. As I've commented previously, the up-front, sexy style of the past (due to the larger Merlot content, I believe) has been replaced by a more regal, at times austere profile. Nevertheless, it's still its own wine and very Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in style. This 2018 is going to need 5-7 years of bottle age and will evolve for 40+ years."
99
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "With a remarkable depth of color, the wine opens from the glass with touches of espresso, smoke, tobacco, flowers, spice and an array of red and black fruits. Full-bodied, richly textured, opulent, velvety and silken, the wine is off the charts with its decadent sex-appeal. This is a modern day version of the legendary 1982 that will easily age for 3-4 decades without fear. Give it at least 10 years in the cellar before pulling a cork. Bravo to the team of Nicolas Glumineau for producing this incredible wine!"

THE WINEADVOCATE: "The 2018 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot with a pH of 3.85, an IPT (total polyphenol index) of 87 and 14% alcohol. The grand vin represents 50% of the crop this year. Deep garnet-purple colored, it charges out of the gate with bold scents of baked plums, ripe blackcurrants and wild blueberries, followed by hints of cedar chest, pencil lead, bouquet garni and charcuterie, plus a waft of lilacs. The medium-bodied palate is beautifully crafted with its seamless freshness and firm, grainy tannins supporting the compelling, finely knit black fruits and savory nuances, finishing on a lingering fragrant-earth note. This will need a good 5 years to come around and should easily cellar for another 30 years or more."
98
WINE ENTHUSIAST: "This famous estate at the southern end of Pauillac has produced a powerful wine. Packed blackberry fruits, laced with acidity, are just starting out on a long journey along with the tannins. The wine's elegance is beautifully preserved within the structure. With considerable potential, the wine should not be drunk before 2027."
98
WINESPECTATOR: "Offers a deep well of dark currant, blackberry paste and plum preserves fruit that needs time to unwind fully, as it’s shrouded in warm earth, tobacco, singed cedar, sweet bay leaf and savory notes. A ramrod of graphite adds to the strident, structured feel. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2030 through 2050."
