Réserve de la Comtesse Pauillac 2001


Now returning to across the seas.  I've always felt that the 2001 left bank Bordeaux vintage was underrated, and this wine from Réserve de la Comtesse (the second wine of Comtesse de Lalande) I am happy to lead as evidence in point.  In its prime drinking window, it is a master class in outstanding Pauillac, with cigar box and an at times ethereal impression of blackcurrants.  Stunning drinking.  Rating: Outstanding. Abv: Not recorded. Price: $100+.
