The 2017 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is aged in 60% new oak and 40% one-year old barrel. It has quite a voluminous and intense bouquet with blackberry, bilberry, a hint of sea spray and smoke that is very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, just a touch of coarseness on the entry, firm and masculine towards the second half with a long Cabernet-driven, graphite-inspired finish. Excellent.
Cabernet-dominant in personality; tight on the finish, with lovely purity and fine tannins. There's some excellent black pepper spice from 5% Petit Verdot - which has only been added to the blend for the past five years. This is a serious wine, with real presence, and layers of liquorice, blackcurrant, hawthorn and tobacco.
Tight and focused with linearity to the way the blackcurrant and dark-chocolate character. Medium-bodied, fresh and clean. Shows brightness.
The 2017 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is a serious second wine from Pichon Baron. Dark cherry, plum, licorice, spice, chocolate and lavender all run through this dark, rather brooding Griffons. Even with all of its depth and density, the 2017 has a level of translucence that keeps it light on its feet. The new oak needs time to integrate, but this is very nicely done.
Lovely Cabernet Sauvignon nose: dark and pure with lively dark cassis. Some attractive graphite savour and beautifully fine texture, slips across the palate. Good length, too. Cool and fresh. (JH)
