Tasting Notes

    Score: 90-93

    Over the last few years while tasting at Pichon Baron, we've watched Pibran get better and better.It hit a sweet spot in 2009 with its plump, juicy core, polished Pauillac tannins and crunchy, fresh finish. A delicious Pibran that should age effortlessly.

    Score: 90

    A major sleeper of the vintage from the owners of Pichon Longueville Baron, this blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon displays plenty of coffee bean, creme de cassis and sweet cherry notes in a very intense, full-bodied, opulent style There is some serious power underlying the extravagant fruit. The 2009 Pibran is a wine to search out, as it is very fairly priced.

    This is well-structured with lots of fruit and rich tannins. No nonsense. Powerful. Best in years.

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
