Tasting Note:

Those who have already read the Reserve de la Comtesse note will have high hope for the Comtesse, and don't worry, you won't be disappointed. This is a Pichon of first growth quality. We unanimously preferred it to their highfalutin neighbour. Aromatically, this is the purest expression of Pauillac, pure claret. It is sensual, yet serious, pure, complex and ethereal. It is like being presented with a freshly picked bunch of roses in a bucket of freshly pressed blackcurrant topped with graphite shavings. It is so alive and vibrant. The flavours on the palate are equally well delineated, beautifully taut, with just the right measure of gloss, pure cassis, delivered with such grace, poise and persistence. The quality and texture of fruit is really impressive. Tannins of the utmost finesse give this more than a touch of seduction and tension. They say that owners look like their dogs; Nicolas always greats us warmly with a beaming smile, and we always seem to leave cheered and smiling from ear to ear having tasted his wines - perhaps wines resemble their makers... Pure class.
