New wine to the offer, the 2015 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron! The history of the Pichon family goes back to the middle ages. Since then, numerous family members have played a role in the history of Bordeaux. This wine is the estate’s latest addition. With a pure and direct character, the Cabernet and Merlot blend is deep red garnet with a nose enhanced by fresh fruit, black currant cream and blueberries. It is soft and velvety with delicate, precise tannins carried by the great maturity that emanates from the quality of the fruit. The finish is delectable, elegant and distinguished. AXA

Wine EnthusiastThis is a strict, dense wine that shouts Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentrated and firm, it has a powerful core of tannins as well as delicious black currant flavors. The wine is likely to need some aging.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron was picked between 18 September and 9 October, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, 60% aged in new oak and the remainder one-year-old. It represents 22% of the total crop, essentially a second deuxième vin, a terroir-based separation since this comes from more gravel soils. It has an understated bouquet, perhaps more so than the 2015 Les Tourelles that contains more Merlot. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, heightened graphite notes with a focused, almost brittle, but quite compelling finish, pencil shavings scattered over the aftertaste.
