A major sleeper of the vintage from the owners of Pichon Longueville Baron, this blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon displays plenty of coffee bean, creme de cassis and sweet cherry notes in a very intense, full-bodied, opulent style There is some serious power underlying the extravagant fruit. The 2009 Pibran is a wine to search out, as it is very fairly priced. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Château Pichon-Baron. A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, this Pibran has a deep garnet core. It has a very pure but very tight nose, a little reticent early in the morning. Blackberry, a touch of black plum and boysenberry. Very smooth and sensuous on the entry, supple tannins, touches of graphite interlacing the black fruit, good acidity, quite linear towards the finish but the Merlot lends it an agreeable corpulence. Tasted March 2010

Lots of blueberries, chocolate and spices on the nose and palate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a fruity, juicy finish. Delicious flavors. Best in 2016. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

This is well-structured with lots of fruit and rich tannins. No nonsense. Powerful. Best in years

60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, between Pontet- Canet and Grand- Puy Lacoste. Merlot on limestone – unusual. This is only 65% of production. 50% new oak. IPT (total polyphenol index) 81. Very dark. Very scented and floral – lilies? Exotic scent and then just a little leaner on the palate. Finishing a bit dry but lots of impact and flashiness. Less flesh than many 2009s. Maybe very slightly hard on the finish. Really very nice wine. GV?
