2023 Chateau Pichon Lalande

A superb new release from Bordeaux today, the 2023 vintage of Pauillac’s second growth, Chateau Pichon Lalande. A superstar performer in recent years and consequently one of the most in-demand of classed growths, this 2023 continues a tremendous run of form to the extent that William Kelley advises his readers that it “will be worth a special effort to track down”.
With its beautiful Chateau and wonderful terroir that nestles up against the vineyards of the First Growth Chateau Latour, Pichon Lalande is always high on the wish lists of collectors. It has been flying in recent years with a series of wonderfully elegant and pure releases wowing critics, merchants and buyers alike.
The 2023 is fabulous. William Kelley gives it 97-99 points and says it unites all Pichon Comtesse’s sensuality with unimpeachable Pauillac classicism”. James Suckling awards 98-99 points and exclaimed, Wow. This is really excellent, with superb finesse and focus… incredibly seamless. Like silk in texture. A top Pichon Lalande. Neal Martin calls it simply “Outstanding”.
Price-wise, this 2023 looks very well judged. As the table above shows, it has the potential for The Wine Advocate, Neal Martin and James Suckling to match or beat some excellent recent vintages; while showing a compelling price advantage.

97-99 points William Kelley
The 2023 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a brilliant wine that will be worth a special effort to track down. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of wild berries and cassis mingled with licorice, lilac, iris root, violet, burning embers and pencil shavings, it’s medium to full-bodied, seamless and complete, with a deep, layered core of cool fruit that largely conceals it’s ultra-refined structuring tannins. At a very measured 13% alcohol and 3.67 pH, it unites all Pichon Comtesse’s sensuality with unimpeachable Pauillac classicism. The 2023 is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. (2024)

Wow. This is really excellent, with superb finesse and focus. It has tight density that is almost diamond-like in its brilliance. Medium to full body, with a quality of tannin that is incredibly seamless. Like silk in texture. A top Pichon Lalande. From organic and biodynamically grown grapes. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 17% merlot and 3% cabernet franc. May be better than 2022. 
96-98 points Neal Martin
The 2023 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande was picked from September 6 until 29, with some rain on September 20 in the middle of Cabernet picking. But, Nicolas Glumineau remarked that the vineyard/fruit was in good condition; one day of rain did not affect the quality. The 2023 has a quintessential Comtesse bouquet, displaying pure and expressive black fruit laced with violet and graphite, delivered with impressive delineation. The palate is very refined on the entry. This is armed with beguiling symmetry—poised yet intense on the finish. It doesn’t exert huge grip because it knows it doesn’t need to, and it fans out gloriously. Outstanding. (2024)
