Lots of blackcurrants, liquid violets, graphite, and rocky mineral notes emerge on the nose, and this medium to full-bodied, tightly knit, concentrated, structured second wine is going to need a good 4-5 years of bottle age, yet should have two decades of longevity.

Pichon Comtesse seems to be improving on its already strong form. You could argue that having the 2009 at £750/6 with 97 points doesn't reflect as positively, but these perfect ratings always move market and if the 2020 can keep it up, then it will be a must buy. At the end of the day, a 100 point wine, especially with this sort of heritage, for just over £100 a bottle, is incredibly fair when considered within the context of the global wine market.L&S (May 2021)

Lots of crème de cassis, blueberries, violets, tobacco, and earth all define the nose, and it hits the palate with a forward, medium to full-bodied, supple texture that already begs to be drunk. I love its balance, the purity of fruit is terrific, and the tannins are spot on as well. It ranks as one of the top second wines in the vintage and will have two decades of prime drinking.

Gorgeous texture here, this has real balance and a sense of careful walking through the palate, a juice and a tension, with a saline kick. An enjoyably sleek wine, not as powerful as the Lynch Bages, and not intended to be either.

This is not an easy wine to taste because of the searing tannins, which I am not sure will ever soften. It will be interesting to see how the Pédesclaux evolves in the coming years. The 2020 has a bit less Cabernet than the recent norm because of lower yields for the Cabernet and a preference for Merlot in this vintage. Pédesclaux remains a decidedly potent Pauillac.
