"check out the blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2010 Comtesse de Lalande, the second wine of this estate. Sweet mulberry, black cherry, licorice, and forest floor notes dominate this medium-bodied, fleshy, soft wine, which should be drunk over the next decade." 89 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
"Fresh blackberries, hint of violets, cedar. The 2010 Reserve de la Comtesse has a fairly deep ruby hue, and aromas of fresh blackberries, cedar and a hint of violets. Made in a gentle, delicate style, this second wine from Pichon Lalande successfully captures the aromatic, perfumed flavours characteristic of this vintage." 91 Points, Jeannie Cho Lee MW
