Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1921-2016

Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is arguably the single hottest château on Bordeaux’s Left Bank right now. Quality has been steadily on the rise for some time, culminating in a trio of spectacular wines in 2014, 2015 and 2016. This remarkable retrospective, many months in the making, provided a fascinating opportunity to explore the château’s rich history.

2015 Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling (20.00) 90

2015 Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling, 90 points

This remarkably consistent joint venture between CSM and German producer Ernie Loosen is a big success in this very ripe vintage. Fresh aromas of peach, lime, orange blossom and clove lead to a concentrated, just off-dry palate with a light touch, piquant spicy lift and sneaky length. (ST)
