Tasting notes

Les Griffons de Pichon Baron offers a dark and intense colour. The nose is fresh, complex and fruity, with particularly pronounced blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, and a subtle, delicate woody character revealing caramel hints. The sensation on the palate is consistent, fleshy and full bodied, with firm, well-structured, powerful tannins. The finish is elegant and precise. Drinking now but will also age very well for up to 20 years.

52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot

The two Pichon Chateaux stand guard at the entrance to Pauillac from St Julien and are two of the most iconic buildings of the Medoc and create two of the most iconic wines.

In 1987 the Pichon Baron estate was bought from the Bouteiller family by AXA Millésimes, whose aim is to enable great wines from vineyards with a glorious past to achieve their full potential. An architectural competition was launched in collaboration with the Paris Pompidou Centre to provide the estate with new operational buildings. The comprehensive reconstruction of the fermenting room and cellar, and renovation of the château, began in 1988.

Since then, the 19th century château's image has been reflected in an ornamental pool stretching majestically before it. And since 2008, its silvery expanse conceals an underground cellar, reminiscent of Jules Verne's Nautilus, with views of both the water and the sky. The barrel cellar complements a production process in which excellence is paramount, in the finest tradition of great Pauillac wines.

The grapes which make up this wine's blend come primarily from gravelly plots of land near to the Gironde estuary, a good environment for Cabernet-sauvignon. Les Griffons offers a vigorous and fresh tasting experience, full-bodied and clean, overflowing with energy. It can be laid down in the cellar for over 20 years or enjoyed right away.
