Very floral and vivid on the nose with lovely ripe Cabernet character that showcases currants and berries. Full body, tight and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Love the balance and beauty.

"The 2014 Pibran is soft, pleasant and quite pretty. Sweet tobacco, earthy notes, smoke, iron and cedar add attractive savory underpinnings. Bright and a bit tightly wound, the Pibran could use a bit more time in bottle for the tannins to soften."

"The 2014 Pibran was tasted twice, the first demonstrating some dustiness on the nose. The second bottle tasted at an impromptu visit at the château showed much more clarity with pretty blueberry and blackberry fruit, not intense but well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, plenty of blackberry and bilberry fruit, a splash of soy and a pleasing spiciness towards the finish. It is a delightful Pauillac that exudes mineral tension all the way through."
