    A sophisticated and precise Pauillac wine

    The second wine of Château Pichon Baron, Les Griffons de Pichon Baron, offers a pure and exemplary character that reflects the entire vineyard. There is a greater amount of Merlot blended into the wine that gives it its softness. More precisely, the blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. The wine was aged for 18 months, with 60% done in new oak barrels.

    At tasting, the wine reveals a beautifully intense dark red colour. The nose exudes freshness and complexity with fruitiness from blackberry and cassis fragrances. There are also delicately subtle oaky aromas with a touch of caramel. On the palate, Les Griffons de Pichon Baron 2014 is a fleshy, full-bodied wine with uniformity. There are tightly structured, powerful tannins. The finish gives a sophisticated and precise wine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron felt very muted on the nose despite coaxing from the glass. Eventually, it reluctantly reveals scents of blackberry and raspberry pastilles, a touch of warm gravel/bricks underneath, though I would like more vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, an elegant Pauillac for certain with silky smooth tannin and very well-judged acidity. Perhaps the growing season deprived it of the substance, yet this feminine wine should drink well for a decade or more.
