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.

Saison, San Francisco

This recent dinner at Saison was one of the very best meals I have had not just in 2017, but in a very long time. Executive Chef Joshua Skenes and Wine Director Mark Bright have created one of the most memorable dining experiences in the Unites States.

Vinous Favorites

2015 Avennia Les Trouvés Red Wine ($25.00) 90

2015 Avennia Les Trouvés Red Wine, 90 points

This GSM blend from Washington State offers pungent spicy lift to its very ripe aromas of raspberry, strawberry and Provençal herbs. Plush and fine-grained, the wine’s chocolatey richness is nicely leavened by a savory quality that carries through a long, palate-saturating finish. (ST)


Cellar Favorites

1978 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche – Grand Cru

This is a fabulous bottle of the 1978 La Tâche. Powerful and driven in feel, with searing acidity, the 1978 is quite expressive.
