Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande wine
Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande was acquired in 2007 by the Rouzaud family, who also own Champagne house Louis Roederer. 

The new ownership has undertaken significant construction projects and redevelopment in the vineyards. The 78 hectares (193 acres) cross the Saint-Julien waterway to approach the plateau of Léoville, then stretch out over the large plateau of Pichon Longueville in the southern part of the Pauillac appellation. Pauillac produces exceptionally rich wines thanks to its poor soil constituted of Garonne gravel (from the Quaternary era) over clay, which also drains very well. 

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande remains faithful to the tradition of hand harvesting. Each year a team of more than 100 harvesters—often the same families, who come from Andalusia for the occasion—gather the grapes according to their degree of ripeness and the age of the vines. Merlot, an early-ripening variety, comes first, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. The team exercises strict selection in the vines, and the grapes are sorted again when they arrive at the winery. 

The variety of soil types and grapes here confers great complexity on Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. Surpisingly supple, it features ripe, well-integrated tannins that reveal a solid structure, perfect balance, and a very long finish. It is seductive when young but has the potential for very long aging. La Réserve de la Comtesse, the château's second label, is a round wine with great finesse, red fruit aromas, and a delicate touch of oak.
