Details

Winemaker Notes: Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is the estate's latest addition. This wine has a pure and direct character. The grapes which make up this wine's blend come primarily from gravelly plots of land near the Gironde estuary, a good environment for Cabernet-Sauvignon. Les Griffons offers a vigorous and fresh tasting experience, full-bodied and clean, overflowing with energy. It can be laid down in the cellar for over 20 years or enjoyed right away.

TASTING NOTE

Les Griffons de Pichon Baron 2018 reveals a deep, almost black colour. The nose is delicate, with notes of black fruits and a hint of subtle, well-integrated wood. The palate is generous and full, with powerful and luscious tannins. The balance is rich and harmonious with tension. The finish is racy and refreshingly long. A wine for laying down, which reflects the terroir and expresses the year's full potential.

52% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 48% Merlot


CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Antonio Galloni - “A powerful, dense wine bursting at the seams with Cabernet Sauvignon savoriness and structure. Crème de cassis, plum, licorice, lavender and grilled herbs are beautifully delineated in a brisk, vibrant Pauillac loaded with class. This is a very serious Pauillac. Second wine of Château Pichon-Baron. The blend is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot. New oak is 60%. 91-94pts


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot, to be aged 12 months in barriques, 30% new and 70% one year old. Production represents 20% of the harvest this year. Very deep purple-black in color, it comes bounding out of the glass with frisky cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and boysenberries scents followed up by notions of dried Provence herbs, moss-covered bark, charcuterie and tapenade. Full, rich and opulent in the mouth, it has bold black fruit and savory expressions, with firm, grainy tannins and a long, meaty finish. 90-92+pts"
