About this Item

Lady May, 2008
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

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. Much work has gone into the vineyards, cellar and winemaking but, more notably, their old-world patience has contributed to the wines. The winery is environmentally friendly and the vineyards are managed with minimal intervention and sustainable techniques.

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

'Grace & style defined, shows perfumed cedar & delineated cassis in a clean, cool, already delectable portion that lingers mid-2010. Splendour awaits, 5 years cellaring' - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2013, 4.5*
