Tasting Notes:

Pibran is a Pauillac-style red wine that stands out for its deep color, brick red with black highlights. Its nose offers intense and complex aromas of cigars, cedar, fresh meat, amarena, and blackberry jam. In the mouth, it reveals itself as round, supple and elegant with contained power, fine tannins and just the right freshness. This wine has good aging potential thanks to its well-balanced tannic structure and moderate acidity.

The 2020 Pibran is a potent wine. Black cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and chocolate are nicely dialed up in this rich, heady Pauillac Soft, plush and exuberant. Pibran is a total charmer. Best of ally will be ready to drink minimal cellaring. Bright acids and floral notes lift the finish.

Based on 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon that saw 50% new oak, the 2020 Château Pibran is a classic wine in the vintage that has a pure, layered, medium to full-bodied style as well as textbook notes of darker berries, cassis, irone, and tobacco. With ripe tannins, a good spine of acidity, and plenty of texture, it's going to evolve for 15-20 years in cold cellars.

Ripe and lush in feel, with a copious mix of cassis, plum and blackberry fruit gliding through easily. The finish, which has nice definition, is dotted with subtle savory and tobacco hints. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2024 through 2036. 1,875 cases made.

Aromas of cassis, raw cocoa, licorice and loamy soil introduce the 2020 Pibran, a medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety wine framed by powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish.

This wine is ripe and smooth, with red fruits and great juiciness. The structure is hidden in the ripe fruits. This wine will age relatively quickly. Drink from 2025.
