MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS Call 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) • Visit us at • Complimentary delivery on all orders over $150 in NY and CT 40 Sensuous textures and deep, layered dark fruits are the calling card of Pichon Lalande, a wine which many consider to be the archetype of Bordeaux from Pauillac. The coMTesse's Touch T he thought is that it's the women's touch that has kept this wine so alluring over the centuries, having been under family management for more than 250 years and led primarily by women. It is May-Eliane de Lencquesaing to whom we owe today's Pichon Lalande. Having taken over in the late seventies, her investments in the estate, the more than doubling its vineyard holdings, and advancements in the winery paved the way to Pichon Lalande's current recognition. The 1996, which was produced under her careful eye, is a prefect representation of the house style. ✦ Chateau Pichon longueville Comtesse de lalande Pauillac 1996 RP 96 » $285 "The 1996 Pichon-Lalande is just as awesome from bottle as it was from multiple cask tastings...The nose suggests sweet, nearly overripe Cabernet Sauvignon, with its blueberry/ blackberry/cassis scents intermixed with high quality, subtle, toasty new oak. Deep and full- bodied, with fabulous concentration and a sweet, opulent texture..." (115800) BORDEAUx
