Producer Tasting Notes

The nose is refined, classy and complex, offering delicious aromas of licorice and blackcurrant, as well as floral nuances of red roses and peony. It goes on to revea more mineral notes of earth and roots, with nuances reminiscent of Virginia tobacco. Starts out remarkably straightforward on the palate, becoming full-bodied, with controlled power and well-balanced extraction mid-palate. The delicious and flavorsome finish is underpinned by polished and precise tannins. Pastry, juicy and fruity notes (blue and black fruit) combine with cedar aromas, adding finesse and complexity.


Vineyard Notes

The Médoc stretches north of Bordeaux, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde Estuary. A remarkable region with particularly poor soils, consisting of gravel rises on clay subsoil. These light, well-drained soils, resulting from the slow drop in water levels during the Quaternary period, provide ideal conditions for the vines to reveal the outstanding quality of the terroir, under the protective influence of a highly favorable microclimate.


Winemaking

Pichon Comtesse implemented a gravity-flow approach throughout the winemaking process, from the reception of the grapes to the moment the wines are put in barrel. Once fermentation is complete and the “free run juice” is run off, the must (the solid part consisting of the grape skins and seeds) is extracted from the vat and delicately pressed. The “press wines” are obtained using precision technology, under the supervision of an expert team. After rigorous selection, their structure will complement the smoother tannins extracted during fermentation to produce the perfect blend.
