Duty Free (EP)

 
DESCRIPTION
PRODUCT REVIEWS

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot
Intense and scented, with a svelte, rich and understated beauty on the palate. Wonderfully structural and generous with stunningly proportioned mouthfeel. Expressive, elegant Pauillac - A symphony and so reminiscent of Chåteau Margaux...but with a stranglehold! Sweet black cherry fruit, cola and a plush yet delicate palate weight. In a word, intoxicating. Drink 2022-2045.

95-96 points James Suckling "This is a really fascinating young Pichon Lalande with a dense center palate of currants, crushed stones, salt and seashells. Really long and intense. Wonderful energy. Showing character of some of the top years of the 1980s. "

92-95 points Antonio Galloni "The 2017 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is gorgeous, but it is also going to need time to come together. The sensuality and allure typical of so many Pauillacs is not at all evident here. A rush of dark cherry, plum, smoke, charcoal and exotic spice make a strong opening statement in a powerful Pichon Comtesse that is not ready to show all of its cards. The 2017 was incredibly reticent in several tastings, which is probably a very good thing for its long-term potential. Today, though, the 2017 is dense, powerful and closed in on itself, without the layers that define the 2014, 2015 and 2016."

93-95 points Neal Martin "The 2017 Pichon-Lalande was picked from 7 September to 2 October and underwent a 23 day cuvaison period. It is intense on the nose, the new oak coming through a little strongly since the sample came from a new barrel, the final blend consisting of 60% new wood. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, the Cabernet Sauvignon driving this alone with layers of black fruit laced with cedar and graphite. It is a very Pauillac Pichon Lalande, less opulent and giving than recent vintages and more in the style of say, the 1996 or 2010. There is very good persistence on the saline finish but it is clearly a wine that is going to require more cellaring than its peers. Tasted four times in total, each time this gained more substance and density."
