Reserve de la Comtesse 2014
13 February 2018

Nicolas Glumineau has clearly brought his Midas touch to Pichon. After a glittering stint at Chateau Montrose, he was poached by Frédéric Rouzeau of Louis Roederer, and what a shrewd signing he has turned out to be. He instantly understood the style of Comtesse and the terroir. His first full vintage was 2013; not the most auspicious omen, but with a savage selection process he succeeded to produce one of the few success stories.

2014 was Nicolas first vintage in ‘normal conditions’, and it was clear to everyone that this was a new dawn for Pichon. The clarity, energy and precision were a revelation; the wines possess an aristocratic ‘Pauillac’ charm, full of violet scented cassis, suave texture and impeccable balance – there really wasn’t a hair out of place... Last week, Reserve de la Comtesse 2014 was sampled simultaneously at our own ‘Portfolio’ tasting and Southwold-on-Thames (it’s not a real place). And it should come as no surprise that it shone at both events. This is a really classy, refined claret, with gorgeous aromatics, noble flavours and just enough flesh to cover its wonderful frame. We can thoroughly endorse this for immediate drinking, or tucking away in the cellar for a few more years.
