CHATEAU PICHON LONGUEVILLE COMTESSE DE LALANDE

Commonly referred to as Pichon Lalande, this famous Second Growth wine is quintessential Pauillac for many consumers, voluptuously textured, with complex layers of fruit and a classic earthy perfume.

Once part of the larger Pichon estate, it was split apart in 1850 when the then owner, 90-year-old Baron Joseph de Pichon-Longueville died and bequeathed the property equally between his five children, the women receiving Pichon Lalande and the men what would become Pichon-Longueville Baron. Pichon Lalande stayed in family hands for over 250 years until it was sold to Champagne giants Louis Roederer in 2007.

A hugely expensive renovation then took place, both in the winery and in the vineyard. 67 hectares are planted in 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The estate is managed sustainably, with half of the vineyard farmed organically. They are also experimenting with bioydnamics.

Enjoy this tasting from the comfort of your own home anywhere in New Zealand. Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is one of the world’s finest wine estates. Commonly referred to as Pichon Lalande and classified Second Growth in 1855, they are one of the greatest of all the Chateaux at this level. This is quintessential Pauillac for many consumers, voluptuously textured and incredibly elegant, with complex layers of fruit and a classic perfume. Tonight, their commercial director Charles Fournier will host this tasting from Bordeaux, leading us through the history and winemaking as we try six amazing wines. Starting with two vintages of their second wine, Reserve de la Comtesse 2017 and 2016. Then the main event is a vertical of four vintages of Pichon Lalande ranging from $200 to over $500 a bottle, including two of the greatest ever made. Château Pichon Lalande 2017, 2016, 2015, 2012.

Your ticket includes 50ml sample bottles of all the wines. To ensure these samples reach you in safe and optimum condition, we will be using the Coravin system to check for cork taint. The tasting bottles will then be filled under a veil of argon gas, to minimise contact with air and prevent oxidation. The team will be using applicable protective practises when preparing the samples. They will then be dispatched to you before the tasting on Thursday evening. These are designed for short term storage to get them to you for the tasting, not for keeping in your cellar. Details will be included explaining how to set up your computer / phone / iPad to join the tasting which will be conducted via Zoom.
