Description/ Tasting Notes

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pibran is a little reduced to begin, with black fruits and tar notions plus hints of dried herbs and chocolate. Medium-bodied with a great core of expressive fruit, it has grainy tannins and a refreshing finish. 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. 

Winery Info/ Brand



The birth of Chateau Pibran dates back to the start of the 20th century. The estate was bought in 1941 by Paul Pibran Billa. Paul Pibran Billa renamed the property, using his middle name of Pibran. While the vineyard is young by Bordeaux standards, the modern era begins when the estate was sold to the AXA group. Chateau Pibran was purchased by the AXA group in 1987 from the Billa family. At the time of the purchase, Jean Michel Cazes of Chateau Lynch Bages was placed in charge of managing the estate for AXA. The AXA group invested a lot of money in Pibran starting in 1988. In fact, the estate was completely renovated. Most of the vineyards were replanted and a new drainage system was installed. The chateau was also renovated and new cellars were constructed. Christian Seely took over managing Chateau Pibran in 2000. Chateau Pibran is in good company with the AXA group who own numerous Bordeaux estates in the Left Bank, Pomerol and Sauternes as well as other wineries in Portugal and Hungary.

Region Info/ Origin



Pauillac is home to several of the world's most famous wine and the region lies in an inauspicious small village in Médoc. Pauillac sprawls over the land size of about 8.8 square miles, is highly optimised for wine production and accounts for a rather disproportionate amount of fine, expensive wine in Bordeaux.
