If you’re looking for something much more drinkable, then 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. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Merlot, delivering 13.4% alcohol with a pH of 3.76 the Reserve has a relatively luscious, generous, Margaux-like bouquet thanks to its floral nature. Good definition and vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with a very tannic, cedar and graphite infused entry thanks to the Cabernet, quite strict and linear, very good weight (the most I have ever seen of a Reserve) with a slightly foursquare finish. Drink 2014-2025. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This starts up slowly and moves on with speed. Super fine tannins and a mineral and flower and spice. Full and silky. Second wine of Pichon. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Very dark but not that purple. Intense and flattering – on the nose anyway. Creamy texture. This would be a lovely introduction to the vintage. Just a little dry and drying on the end but it’s gorgeous on the front palate. Odd that they are serving a sample drawn 4 Apr on 7 Apr at the chateau - even though it is in decent nick. I think the frontal charm would flatter enormously. Sweetness and flattery. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

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 very aromatic, perfumed flavours characteristic of this vintage. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com
