This Bikavér by Sebestyén cost nearly twice as much as the rest of the wines at the restaurant, but there was no question that we would get it. We didn’t get the chance to visit Sebestyén and their wines came highly recommended by @elizabeth.gabaymw—she said the wines are on the elegant and I was immediately sold. It’s hard to make a conclusive statement since there are so many excellent Bikavér wines in Szekszárd but I’d be inclined to say this is my favorite. The judicious use of oak gives a different dimension to the aroma while the good fruit punches through the toasty, brown spice and vanilla. The Kékfrankos forms the foundation of the flavor profile. The Merlot lends a nice texture to the palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon gives a discreet visit on the nose and lingers at good bye. After some aeration, the wine becomes more charismatic as that small dash of Kadarka appears more pronounced on the nose, leaving behind a syrupy, sweet rose-like aroma. An elegant wine with subtle, harmonized nuances and great length! Super thanks to Elizabeth for this excellent find.
Getting excited for tomorrow night!

"This is very good. Hilltops Shiraz fruit made to 13.5%. The wine appreciates the lower alcohol. Spicy, mid range structure, great acid. McWilliam's keep making sneaky good wines from this part of NSW" Thanks for the review @therealmarkwills! #winewednesday

Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1961
“A First Class Second Cru” was how the Wine Spectator magazine very aptly described Château Pichon Lalande! The latter was created as a result of the splitting of the original Château Pichon Longueville in 1850 when the owner established his children’s inheritance: his son took charge of the current Pichon Longueville Baron, while his daughter, Virginie, who was married to the Comte de Lalande, received the other part of the property, hence the addition of “Comtesse de Lalande”. A determined figure with a passion for wine, Virginie oversaw the property's rise and its establishment in its own right. It remained within her family until 1925, when it was purchased by Edouard and Louis Miailhe.From 1978 to 2007 the domaine was managed by another grande dame: Edouard Miailhe's daughter, May-Eliane de Lencquesaing. Grand Chancellor of Bordeaux's Wine Academy, she was known as La Générale, thanks to her husband's military career. The feminine influence of the Comtesse a century earlier could not have found a finer echo, and Pichon Lalande's impassioned history is reflected in the special affection that connoisseurs have always had for the château's wines. The property was purchased by the Rouzaud family in 2007, the owners, among other interests, of Roederer champagne.
Of the property's 75 hectares, 11 are in the commune of Saint Julien, giving the wines a certain elegance, uncommon for Pauillac. In addition to the predominant Cabernet Sauvignon, which gives the wines a great capacity to age, there is also a high proportion of Merlot, giving them a remarkable suppleness especially when young. The grand vin of Pichon Comtesse thus exquisitely marries the concentration of a Pauillac with very distinct tannins. Its exceptional terroir overlooking the Gironde means it can effectively resist harsh winters and overly warm summers. In the closed circle of the finest Bordeaux. To be sampled after 10 to 30 years.
May your days be merry and bright!
