The Wine Independent 98-100 Points: “A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is deep garnet-purple in color. After a little coaxing, aromas of blackcurrant jelly, juicy plums, and wild blueberries waltz out of the glass, followed by nuances of red roses, damp soil, tar, and licorice. The medium-bodied palate is tightly wound, with impressive tension created by mineral-laced, crunchy black fruit layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and savory. pH 3.8.”

Jeff Leve 98-100 Points: “With an inky, dark, garnet hue, the wine asks for a bit of coaxing before its leather, cedar, spice, flowers, truffle, mint, currants and dark cherries show in the perfume. The wine is pure silk on the palate. There are no edges or corners. Everything feels in place. It is completely seamless. The wine is pure, fresh, and expansive. The mid-palate picks up its currants and plums, while the finish holds them in place, and expands in all 4 directions, with perfect balance in its 60-second plus finish. This is the best vintage of Pichon Comtesse ever produced! If you have the extra money, this is the wine to buy as it will provide dividends for decades as it ages and evolves. The wine blends 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. 13.65% ABV, 3.80 pH. The harvest took place September 6 - September 27. Yields were 30 hectoliters per hectare. Only 50% of the harvest goes into the Grand Vin.”

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 97-99 Points: “The 2022 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is one wine where a comparison with this estate's magical 1982 doesn't appear to be far-fetched. Wafting from the glass with deep aromas of cassis, plums, violets, rose petals, tobacco leaf and pencil shavings, it's full-bodied, supple and fleshy, with a layered, seamless core of fruit that largely conceals its chassis of powdery structuring tannin. Concluding with a long, expansive and beautifully perfumed finish, it's a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that has the potential to equal or even surpass the 2019 and 2016 vintages at this address. It checks in at a very classical 13.6% alcohol and a rather high pH of 3.80.”

James Suckling 98-99 Points: “I love the aromatics here with botanicals as well as currants, blackberries and oranges. Full-bodied with incredible tannins that build on the palate with finesse and focus. Featherlight but always there. Stealth in structure. Very vertical. Savory. Superb. 78% cabernet sauvignon, 17% merlot and 5% cabernet franc.”

Falstaff 100 Points: “Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, fast tintig, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Cassis und Gewürznelken, dunkle Waldbeeren, reife Kirschen, feines Nugat, sehr einladendes Bukett. Stoffig, süß und elegant, schokoladige Textur, frisch und komplex, süßer Nachhall, enormer Druck, tolle Länge, Harmonie, salziges Finale, nicht enden wollend, der Nachfolger für den legendären 1982er ist geboren, der delikateste Pauillac seit Langem.’’

Jeb Dunnuck 97-100 Points: “One of the gems from Pauillac is unquestionably the 2022 Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse De Lalande, which is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. A hypothetical blend of the 2019 and 2020, it's a full-bodied, concentrated, opulent Comtesse offering beautiful blue fruits, some chocolate, leafy herbs, and undeniable minerality, ripe, velvety tannins, and a great finish. Despite the higher Cabernet Sauvignon component, this stays silky, expansive, and incredibly sexy. It's going to be drinkable with just 4-5 years of bottle age but should have a lengthy drink window. Hats off to director Nicolas Glumineau for another legendary wine from this château.”

Figaro Vin 97-100 Points: “Profond et hypnotique, tel le sommet émergé d’un iceberg, le nez évoque les fruits bleus scintillants, le cassis très pur frais comme une brise d’été, presque hautain, les fraises mûres à point et des notes végétales de feuilles de thé infusées et les feuilles de myrtille. Un bouquet magique. Une seule gorgée de ce vin est suffisante pour vous entraîner dans un voyage autour du monde sur le bateau de Max et les Maximonstres. La bouche est volumineuse et voluptueuse, mais sa dimension va au-delà de l'ampleur du vin en bouche. La fraicheur associant fruits, fleurs et notes végétales nobles est étonnante. Il y a une race, une matière à la texture de taffetas, et un mouvement qui participent à un festival de saveurs, textures et émotions. Majestueux.”
