Bordeaux 2017 - Pichon Comtesse and Reserve de la Comtesse

Bordeaux 2017 - Pichon Comtesse and Reserve de la Comtesse
Nicolas Glumineau has transformed the fortunes of Pichon Comtesse, turning it into one of the most consistently outstanding wines in the Medoc. The 2014 set the bar at vertigo inducing heights, only for 2015 and 2016 to sail over. 2017 is once again a real beauty – this is a wine of First Growth pedigree and finesse; there are the tell-tale haunting aromatics, gorgeous texture and precision of flavours, and the most effortless of tannins – it’s the whole package! This really is a huge success and a worthy addition to the impressive compendium of Glumineau wines.

What is more, the release price is down by some 21% to £558 per six in bond. Given the remarkable quality and the trajectory Pichon is plotting, this is definitely a 2017 to get excited about.
