Classification Cru Bourgeois

This well-proportioned property between Pontet Canet and Mouton Rothschild, is run by the Pichon Baron team - and making some brilliant wines. The 2014 has all the hallmarks of classic Pauillac. Suave, with a sophisticated patina of polished dark berry and plum fruit. Great lines, pert yet easy and a wonderful cigar-box and baking spice lift that adds a touch of grand exoticism - all this at a bargain price for wines from this particular 'coin' de Bordeaux.

Château Pibran

Château Pibran, now under the guidance Christian Seely and the AXA-Millesimes team, produces with good complexity, weight and concentration. Its 9.5 hectares of vineyards stretch across a well-drained gravel bank and border those of Mouton-Rothschild, Lynch-Bages and Pontet Canet. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The wines are vinified at Pichon-Baron. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and the wine is matured for 12-15 months in barriques (50% new). Pibran is classified as a cru bourgeois but is now producing wines the equal of many of its more highly classified neighbours.
