If there is one Château really jostling for First Growth status in recent years, it’s undoubtedly Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. Inherited by May-Éliane de Lencquesaing in 1978 and then acquired by the Rouzaud family in 2007 (of Roederer fame), the estate is at the head of the “Super Seconds” and rightly recognised as one of Bordeaux’ most illustrious and sought-after wines.
We are delighted to be joined by director and head winemaker Nicolas Glumineau for an unmissable Wine Therapy Session where we will begin with two vintages of the impressive second wine Reserve de Comtesse, before moving onto four landmark vintages of the Grand Vin, including the 100 point scoring 2016. With the exciting 2020 campaign on the horizon, this is a tremendous opportunity to get an inside view from one of Bordeaux’ most revered estates.
