A blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 50% new oak, the 2015 Château Pibran is a beautiful Pauillac that does well in a vintage which can be erratic for this appellation. Very classic notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings, and spice give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant red that has fine tannin, nicely integrated acidity, and top-notch purity of fruit. This is a tiny estate owned by Pichon-Longueville Baron, and it’s a Pauillac well worth checking out. I suspect it’s also a great value and should keep for 15-20 years.
A very concise mid-weight wine that has attractive cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors arranged in a neatly presented frame of smooth tannins. Velvety finish and good depth. Try from 2021.
This wine is spicy, packed with tannins that are well integrated with the black fruits. It is rich, it is round and it will develop quickly.
Well-expressed, even Cabernet-Merlot blend showing crunchy black fruits. Clear and structured; will age well. (SS)
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pibran is a little reduced to begin, with black fruits and tar notions plus hints of dried herbs and chocolate. Medium-bodied with a great core of expressive fruit, it has grainy tannins and a refreshing finish. (LPB)
The 2015 Pibran is soft, succulent and quite pretty. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into a core of dark red stone fruits in an attractive, supple wine that will drink well pretty much upon release. This is a lovely, fruit-driven Pauillac with considerable near term appeal. (AG)
Black cherry and cassis flavors are fresh and pure, with gentle vanilla, licorice and singed alder notes filling in through the finish. Shows a flicker of savory on the bright finish. A very pure, charming Pauillac. Drink now through 2028. (JM)
