Robert Parker tasting notes:
At full maturity, this 1985 Pichon Comtesse has a bit of pink around the edges, a soft nose of herb-tinged cherries and cassis mixed with dusty notes and new oak. The wine is medium-bodied, elegant, very flattering and fragrant." (January 2003)
Exceptional provenance in OWC: These bottles come from a cellar of a great Swiss enthusiast and collector. We have acquired the complete collection containing more than 200 bottles of mainly French and Italian wines. The bottles were all preserved following their purchase en primeur or shortly after their marketing on site, in a natural cellar buried under a 16th century convent. A damp cellar, which is why some labels are very worn. The levels are generally excellent or perfect and the most "fragile" bottles demonstrate storage in total darkness for more than 30 years!
