A major sleeper of the vintage, this under-the-radar Pauillac from the owners of Pichon Longueville Baron comes from a 42-acre vineyard, and the blend is divided equally between two grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Classic smoky barbecue notes intermixed with cassis, forest floor and cedar jump from the glass of this dense purple, thick, unctuously textured, rich and heady wine, which can be drunk in 3-4 years. Moreover, it should last for up to two decades. This is normally not too expensive a wine, since consumers do not follow it closely, so readers should take note. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot (blended one month ago) aged in 50:50 in new oak and one year old barrels, the Pibran ’10 has a very pure, lifted nose of dark cherries, blackberry and a touch of red cherry sorbet. Good delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins on the entry, good acidity, fresh but very taut. Nice sharpness towards the finish with touches of graphite lingering on the aftertaste. Very fine. Drink 2013-2020. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

What lovely balance to this wine with currants, pencil and berry. Full and velvety. Lovely all around. jamessuckling.com

60% selection. There’s a second wine of Pibran for the rest! 50:50 Merlot: Cabernet Sauvignon. Very fresh and racy on the nose. The earlier maturing style of Pauillac 2010? But it’s very drying on the end. Rather hard work – very dry. jancisrobinson.com

The 2010 Pibran has a very attractive aromas of vibrant blackberries, cherries, plums, cedar, followed on the palate by a generosity of flavours. The vibrant flavours are well balanced by wonderful structure and good length. Pibran is a small 17 ha property next to Pontet Canet making better and better wine every year. This 50% Cabernet and 50% Merlot often found below 30 Euros makes it a very good value wine. This 17 hectare property next to Pontet Canet has produced a very attractive wine with great warmth and body. Made with equal measures of Cabernet and Merlot, it offers vibrant blackberries, cherries, plums, and cedar nose. A wine with great structure (firm tannins and freshness) that has been thoughtfully crafted. asianpalate.com

Tasted at Pichon Baron. Floral dark hedgerow fruit. This is a big, broad wine with excellent balance and should be drinking very well in 5-7 years.
