« This is the second wine of Château Pibran, whose vineyard is situated close to those of the the first growths of Mouton and Lafite. Structured and dense, this is a solid, powerful wine, packed with juicy black currant fruits and generous tannins. » (Wine Enthusiast 2015)

Vineyard rated (guide 2016) : Sélectionné (Un domaine ou une maison qui nous a séduits avec un ou plusieurs vins de sa production, sans que nous puissions donner un avis général sur le style de l'ensemble de la gamme)

About the vineyard : Propriété d’Axa, ce vignoble est idéalement situé sur une croupe de graves, avec des voisins aussi prestigieux que Pontet-Canet et d’Armailhac. Avec l’acquisition en 2001 du château Tour Pibran, le choix du parcellaire a permis à Jean-René Matignon et aux équipes de Pichon-Baron de sélectionner le meilleur pour Pibran et de créer un deuxième vin.

About the vineyard : Installé sur la croupe de Pontet-Canet et d’Armailhac, Pibran a été racheté, en 1987, par AXA Millésimes. Vinifié par l’excellent Jean-René Matignon, de Pichon-Longueville, le vin se distingue régulièrement parmi l’élite des crus bourgeois, porté par un style pauillacais très classique, mêlant générosité et structure tannique. Corsé, bouqueté, accessible rapidement, il vieillit bien et avec grâce.

Pauillac, a famous red Bordeaux, takes its name from a port town on the Gironde estuary. The vineyards are perched on a magnificent hill where they enjoy sandy white gravel soils with good natural drainage that sit on a bedrock of marl with varying levels of limestone. The soil is so poor that nothing can grow here—except vines, which survive by sending their roots deep into the ground ...
