Château Pichon Longueville Lalande Pauillac 2020

$196

A wow wine, packed with cassis, loganberry and mulberry flavors that hint at the vintage’s warmth, but this stays poised and fresh, with a sleek structure built on graphite and iron. There’s violet and lilac lift in the background and a groundswell of sweet tobacco, savory and singed cedar details that emerge through the finish, all with a fine-grained and rather luxurious feel. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2030 through 2045.
