Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
Very solid from the start, with dark currant and blackberry compote notes, a graphite grip and a long tobacco- and iron-fueled finish. Very well-defined.
Barrel Sample:92-95

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Château Pibran emerges from a cooler, gravelly terroir in Pauillac and is close to an even split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, all raised in 50% new oak. Lots of red, black, and blue fruits as well as lead pencil, violets, camphor, and smoked tobacco emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a terrific sense of freshness, ripe yet firm, polished tannins, and a great finish. This is another classic Pauillac that's going to benefit from 3-6 years of bottle age (it's far from unapproachable today) and keep for 20-25 years in cold cellars. Rating : 93+

JS 93
James Suckling

Blackcurrant, blueberry, pencil-lead, clove and walnut-husk aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, tight-grained tannins. Nice minerality. Try from 2024 and onwards.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Pibran is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Merlot, matured for 18 months in barriques, 50% new and 50% one year old. Deep garnet-purple in color, it comes skipping out of the glass with bright, cheerful scents of Morello cherries, mulberries and wild blueberries, giving way to a core of cassis, dark chocolate and violets, with a waft of wood smoke. Medium-bodied, the palate is delicately styled with fantastic freshness and fine-grained tannin's supporting the crunchy black fruit layers, finishing long and lifted.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Rich in both structure and fruit, this wine has ripe tannins and a full, generous texture that is given shape by full-bodied, black-fruit flavors. From the northern part of Pauillac, the wine is good for medium-term aging. Drink from 2023.

D 90
Decanter

A very tasty, enjoyable Pibran that comes from a cooler site than the main Pichon Baron wine, from gravel soils over a bed of limestone, and always the last for the team to harvest as was the case again in 2018. You can certainly feel the freshness and juice through the dark fruits – a wine that will be limbered up after just four or five years in bottle. 50% new oak. A yield of 37hl/ha. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038. Barrel Sample: 90

V 90
Vinous

The 2018 Pibran is matured for 18 months in 50% new oak. It maintains the mixture of black and blue fruit on the nose, vivacious and generous, with floral and lavender scents that emerge with time. The palate is very smooth and harmonious, offering plenty of graphite-infused black fruit and a precise finish. The headiness on display from barrel is now tempered with plenty of freshness. A lovely Pibran. Drinking window: 2022 - 2036
