“Offering up aromas of cassis and pipe tobacco, the 2009 Reserve de la Comtesse presents itself as a perfect second wine from the chateau. Impressive enough to thrill fans of Lalande's top wines, and a great point of entry for newcomers since it offers plenty of approachability. Forward and balanced, it gives up loads of black cherry, currant, cedar spice, with a layered complexity that belies its modest price. A polished and delicious wine now, it will continue to drink well over the next 5-7 years.”
