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.
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*

'A solid, muscular style, exhibiting very Bordeaux-like notes of dark tobacco, mulled black currant and coffee up front, followed by a loamy edge on the broad, cassis bush–tinged finish. Lots of rugged character should flesh out nicely with modest cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.' - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 91/100 (Dec 2010)

Top 100 wine winner (5 Stars)
