Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a little underwhelming on the nose considering its peers, showing some signs of under-ripeness that jars against the black, cedar-tinged fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, tobacco-stained red berry fruit to the fore and with decent weight on the rather leafy finish. It actually finishes better than it begins, although it is difficult to envisage any improvement down the line.
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
Fresh and fruity, offering berry and floral aromas that follow through to a medium-to-full body, with slightly chewy tannins that are polished and attractive. Needs more in the midpalate to be outstanding.
