Deeply colored, with a rocking bouquet of crème de cassis, lead pencil, black cherries, earth, and flowers, it's more finesse-driven and structured than the Les Tourelles de Longueville, with a straight, focused, yet still layered and ripe personality. It's another beautiful wine.

Graceful, agile and fresh with the tannic bite of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the roundness from the sweet Merlot, this wine was made from blending 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot and will age in 60% new, French oak barrels.

Blackberry, plum, cocoa and gravel aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine tannins framing a solid core of spiced black fruit. Tight, mineral finish. Very fine and balanced. Try from 2024.

The 2018 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is composed of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot, aged for 12 months in barriques, 30% new and 70% one year old.

Production of this label represents 20% of the harvest this year. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose opens with wonderfully pure cassis and ripe black plums notes, leading to hints of clove oil, chocolate-covered cherries and tobacco leaf, with a waft of bay leaves. The palate delivers a firm, rugged texture and soft acidity, framing the mouth-coating black fruits nicely, finishing on a savory note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Gentle redcurrant, raspberry and soft woodsmoke. Bushed tannins and less closed-off in feel, although there is the characteristic Pauillac bite on the finish.
