* Robert Parker 95 point * (læs anmeldelse nederst). Pichon-Longuevilles historie kan spores helt tilbage til 1688. Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande til blev, da den store Pichon-Longueville ejendom blev delt i 1850, da Virginie de Pichon-Longueville arvede 3/5 af ejendommen. I 1925 blev slottet solgt til Edourd Miailhe og hans bror. Edourd Miailhes datter May-Éliane de Lencquesaing overtog ejendommen i 1978. Hun renoverede slottet i 1980´erne, og der blev opført en helt ny kælder.

The 2010 Pichon Lalande is performing extremely well and at the top of the range I predicted several years ago. A final blend dominated much more by Cabernet Sauvignon than usual (66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot), the wine is a tighter, more tannic and structured version of this famed Pauillac, which often tends to have more of a St-Julien-like personality than most Pauillacs. Structured, backward and tannic, yet showing a fat mid-palate that is more savory, broader and more expansive than I remember from barrel, this wine is somewhat reminiscent of the 1986, given the Cabernet Sauvignon domination of the blend. Full-bodied, impressively endowed, and less sexy and velvety than normal, this is a somewhat different style of Pichon Lalande than most readers have been used to. Whether you like it more or less will depend on your point of view, but this wine, unlike most Pichon Lalandes, needs a good 5-7 years of cellaring and should keep for 30+ years. 95+
