About this Item

Lady May, 2011
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 cellar master, Luke O’Cuinneagain, this is their flagship red from the finest 2009 vintage. It is sourced from a cool east-facing slope, producing an elegant, distinguished and venerable wine, just like its owner.

Critics Ratings

‘Classic cabernet naturally fermented 2011 still youthfully taut, with subtle lead pencil, dark fruit aromas; complementary oaking (100% new). Full bodied, but fine acid backbone & properly dry finish lend overall refinement. Includes a little petit verdot, merlot. Stellenbosch WO.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 4.5* (2016)

‘85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot. Matured for 24 months in French oak, 100% new. Cassis, violets, some leafiness and pencil shavings. Quite lean with fresh acidity and fine, powdery tannins, the finish very dry. Apparently mistaken for Bordeaux in an MW exam and it’s not difficult to see why.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100 (2016)
