About this Item

Lady May, 2010
1 (1 x 1) 3000ml
Owner of famous Bordeaux Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, May de Lencquesaing, decided in 2003 to make her life-long dream a reality and she purchased an estate in Stellenbosch. Continuing with the French tradition in the area, major re-investment took place with the objective to produce award-winning wines that are full of power, grace and elegance.
In collaboration with cellarmaster, Luke O’Cuinneagain, this is their flagship single-vineyard blend. Sourced from a cool east facing slope, ‘it’s elegant, distinguished and venerable like its owner’.

Critics Ratings

Continuing Stellar orbit of 09, 10 is textured, complex, layered & concentrated, shows a fynbos & tealeaf sheen to ripe Christmas cake fruit, ripe dry tannin. Drinkable now, it’s dense & dark aromas & flavours will unfurl beautifully over many years.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2013, 4.5*

‘The 2010 Lady May has a very pure, intense, Bordeaux-like bouquet of blackberry, cassis, mint and tobacco that expands in the glass with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, smooth and quite voluptuous for this label, and slightly meaty toward the finish, which offers graphite and brown spice on the aftertaste. Very fine - drink now and over the next decade.’ – Neal Martin, Vinous.com (August 2018), 91/100

Solidly built, with cassis bush, blackberry and fig fruit flavors rolled up with charcoal and bittersweet cocoa notes. The rugged tannins are integrated through the finish, lending this a muscular feel. A buried iron accent should emerge with some cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2019. 250 cases imported.’ – Wine Spectator (Tasted 2014), 91/100
