Description

Second wine of Château Pichon Baron. 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.

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.

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.”
