Pichon Comtesse Réserve, Pauillac, 2022

Tasting Note:

The quality of some of the second wines this year is quite astonishing. Technical Directors must have questioned the need to declassify any fruit. Nicolas Glumineau decided to produce Pichon Comtesse Reserve, and it's a wonderful example with grand vin proportions. It opens with an attractive and lifted bouquet of purple fruits, graphite and violets. The palate continues in the same vein with detailed, expressive, wonderfully textured creme de mûre fruit, lots of minerality and a sumptuous mouthfeel. Super-refined and very serious for a second label. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
