‘A dazzling, towering’ Pichon Lalande
13 June 2016

Nicolas Glumineau has only been at Pichon Lalande for three full vintages. In this short time, he has transformed the fortunes of this great estate and returned it to the very top of the Bordeaux hierarchy. The 2013, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee demonstrated the estate’s commitment to quality. The 2014 was arguably the wine of the vintage – the demand was staggering in what was a relatively pedestrian campaign. The 2015 is simply outstanding, the pinnacle of Nicolas’ achievement to date. We first tasted the incredible 2015 Pichon with Stephanie Danglade in February. It was a powerful, lavish, almost extravagant wine. When we re-tasted in April it was monumental, and with promise of more. It still has a plushness, with a luxurious array of fruit, but it has all come together so beautifully with mesmerising aromatics and a thoroughly captivating structure. It is perhaps the most accomplished Pauillac we tasted – a regal, floral effort, true to the noble traditions of this magnificent terroir.

The second wine, La Reserve de la Comtesse is also staggeringly good. At £285 per case, this gorgeous Pauillac bursting with violets and roses is too good to miss!
