Blend: 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon
94 Points from James Suckling
This is a vivacious and very attractive, ripe Pauillac with aromas of ripe red plums, cherries and blackberries on offer. The palate has a plush, refined and suave array of very attractive, fine but dense tannins and the rich blackberries, plums and mulberries carry long and super fresh. Try from 2023.
93 Points from Wine Spectator
This has showy fruit, with dark plum, boysenberry and black currant compote flavors that are nicely melded, with freshness provided by licorice snap and violet notes. A really strong graphite edge drives the finish, with fine acidity playing an important supporting role along the way. Best from 2023 through 2038.
92+ Points from Jeb Dunnuck
Loads of cassis, graphite, and pencil lead notes dominate the bouquet of the 2016 Château Pibran, which is deeply colored, full-bodied, and nicely textured on the palate. It’s another incredibly classy wine from the northern regions of the Médoc that has enough fruit and texture to offer pleasure today, yet will benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise in cold cellars.
