Best value wines of Bordeaux 2017

Reserve de la Comtesse

2016 release price: €30 p/b
Julia Harding MW: 16
Neal Martin: 90-92

Pichon Comtesse is one of those properties (along with Pichon Baron, Canon and Rauzan-Ségla and others) that can hardly seem to put a foot wrong at the moment and the quality being squeezed out of their first wines is having a trickle down effect on their second labels too it would seem.

Although 2017 might not have seemed a typical year to aim for second labels due to the frost damage, in areas where the frosts were minimal such as Pauillac such fears can be somewhat tempered.

Like Gloria, this will be at the upper end of ‘best value’, at £300+ a case in all likelihood but not a bad choice for those with the means.
