"A blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 50% new oak, the 2015 Château Pibran is a beautiful Pauillac that does well in a vintage which can be erratic for this appellation. Very classic notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings, and spice give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant red that has fine tannin, nicely integrated acidity, and top-notch purity of fruit. This is a tiny estate owned by Pichon-Longueville Baron, and it’s a Pauillac well worth checking out. I suspect it’s also a great value and should keep for 15-20 years." - Jeb Dunnuck
"A very concise mid-weight wine that has attractive cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors arranged in a neatly presented frame of smooth tannins. Velvety finish and good depth. Try from 2021." - James Suckling
"Black cherry and cassis flavors are fresh and pure, with gentle vanilla, licorice and singed alder notes filling in through the finish. Shows a flicker of savory on the bright finish. A very pure, charming Pauillac. Drink now through 2028. (JM)" - Wine Spectator
"The 2015 Pibran is ample, juicy and absolutely delicious, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Floral notes add lift to the racy, red stone fruit. The 2015 is an unusually polished, nuanced Pibran. (AG)" - Stephen Tanzer
