"2021 Pichon Comtesse de Lalande"
"2021, Rare and precious
The torments of unpredictable and dreadful weather tested our certainties, our perseverance and our conviction to convert Pichon Comtesse to organic farming. It took everything we had to draw on our inner strength and find the vital force of this superb terroir to produce a unique vintage.
Take notice... it brings together the wrath of heaven, the soul of the earth, the glory of the vine and the will of man!
2021 will be forever engraved in our minds..." Nicolas Glumineau, CEO & Winemaker
To be noted, Pichon Comtesse is among Antonio Galloni's favorite wines in this vintage: an "epic Pichon Comtesse".
96-98 Antonio Galloni
Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Let's start with the good. The 2021 Pichon Comtesse is epic and certainly among the great wines of this vintage. Sadly, the coulure and mildew in the first year of organic farming plus dehydration at the end of the growing season took with it fully two thirds of the crop. In other words, there's not much wine to go around. Rich and sumptuous in the glass, yet clocking in at 12.9% alcohol, the 2021 is beautifully layered and totally sensual from the very first taste. Hints of red fruit, flowers, mint, white pepper and dried savory herbs develop with a bit of coaxing. The Cabernet Sauvignon, at 88%, is very high by historical standards. Quite simply, the 2021 is a tour de force from Technical Director Nicolas Glumineau and his team. If there is one wine readers will absolutely jump on en primeur it is Pichon Comtesse. Should the bottled wine turn out as well as this sample, pricing is likely to jump materially because of the tiny production. Don't miss it. - Antonio Galloni
