Réserve de la Comtesse Pauillac (Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande GCC 2nd wine)

One of the most famous and reliable Second Vin of the Left Bank, the Réserve de la Comtesse is produced by Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande.
Pichon Longueville’s history can be traced back to 1688-1689, but it was only in 1850, that Virginie de Pichon Longueville, Comtesse de Lalande inherited three fifths of the vineyard that was named Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande a few years later.
The Champagne firm of Louis Roederer acquired this great growth in January 2007 in order to perpetuate the excellent work done by their predecessor and to attain the ultimate in quality and prestige.

This 2015 Pauillac enjoyed a microclimate and relative dryness with a really good concentration of the grapes, a truly great vintage.
