Alcohol/vol 14%
A lovely purple opaque color and aromas of sweet plum and vanilla with a touch of spice on the nose. Aged for one year in new French oak, it has medium acidity, boasts a ripe round attack and has excellent concentration, balance and ripe chewy tannins.

The 2018 Château Pibran emerges from a cooler, gravelly terroir in Pauillac and is close to an even split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, all raised in 50% new oak. Lots of red, black, and blue fruits as well as lead pencil, violets, camphor, and smoked tobacco emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a terrific sense of freshness, ripe yet firm, polished tannins, and a great finish. This is another classic Pauillac that's going to benefit from 3-6 years of bottle age (it's far from unapproachable today) and keep for 20-25 years in cold cellars.

The 2018 Pibran is fabulous, just as it was en primeur. Juicy, rich and expansive in this vintage, Pibran offers terrific richness and verve. Dark cherry, spice, new leather and cedar build as this stylish Pauillac shows off its considerable charms. The 2018 is unquestionably extroverted. It is also shamelessly delicious.

Rich in both structure and fruit, this wine has ripe tannins and a full, generous texture that is given shape by full-bodied, black-fruit flavors. From the northern part of Pauillac, the wine is good for medium-term aging. Drink from 2023.

Enticing, with violet and iron notes sharing equal time with a mix of red and black currant fruit. Cedar and humus notes dot the finish, adding range. Approachable already too. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2029. 2,083 cases made.
