"A very ripe, sumptuous bouquet engendered with a sorbet-like character: orange/mango notes coming through .. The palate is better: soft, harmonious and approachable, clean and svelte on the finish with a touch of spice/ black cedar-infused fruits. Very fine, nice purity – this is a great showing."

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande acquired Château Bernadotte in 1998. It is situated in the Commune of Saint Sauveur which borders the Pauillac appellation to the west, close to a number of classified growths and only a few kilometers away from Pichon. Since then May-Eliane de Lencquesaing and her team made important investments not only in the château, vat room and cellars but also in the vineyard.
