Once part of the larger Pichon estate which was divided after the death of the then owner between his children in 1850, Pichon Comtesse has long been a Chateau revered for it's quality, classed as 2eme in 1855 and occasioanly refered to as a "Super Second", it is sited in prime Pauillac realestate with it's neighbours Latour, Leoville Las Cases and their sibling Pichon Baron.
Remaining in the same family for around 250 years this is a Chateau that has a great array of soil types that have helped them create a distinct style that has been revered yet markedly distinct from their siblings at Pichon Baron.
The wines of Pauillac known more for a strak power, Pichon Comtesse consistently deliver sensuous wines that display an elegance from a higher representation of Merlot for the region that is influenced by its ironstone rich clay.
Elegant and long lived these wines are a must for all collectors of fine Bordeaux.
Still in their original timber case, these bottles are of excellent fill level in the base of the neck with very very good labels.
