  • Parker : 90-92

A sophisticated and precise Pauillac wine

The second wine of Chateau 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 color. 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 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron 2014 comes from terroir that is close to the Grand Vin in style, composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot that is aged in 60% new oak. It has a pretty bud of a nose: violets and cassis infused with cedar, nicely defined and actually quite sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin and purity. This is clearly superior to their alternative second wine, Les Tourelles. This is well worth seeking out as it should represent good value.
