Notes from the Winemaker:
Les Griffons de Pichon Baron has a pure, direct character. The blend’s grapes come primarily from gravelly plots of land near the Gironde estuary, a beneficial environment for Cabernet Sauvignon. Les Griffons offers a vigorous, fresh tasting experience. It is full-bodied and bursting with energy. It can be cellared for over 20 years, or enjoyed right away.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is a strict, dense wine that shouts Cabernet Sauvignon. Concentrated and firm, it has a powerful core of tannins as well as delicious black currant flavors. The wine is likely to need some aging." - Roger Voss (Apr 2016)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni:

"The 2015 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is dense, powerful and quite juicy, with plenty of black cherry, menthol, licorice and smoke overtones nuances that all build in the glass. Polished and racy to the core, the 2015 is a terrific choice for drinking over the next decade or so." (Feb 2018)

92 Points - James Suckling:

"An impressive Pauillac with rich dark-berry aromas and flavors. The tannins are nicely cast and really fulfill the potential of the fruit. This finishes fresh. Try from 2020." (Feb 2018)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Solid, with a direct core of black currant and plum coulis flavors lined with a graphite note. Singed alder and warm tobacco details score the finish. Nicely focused in feel overall, lingering with a juicy edge. Drink this now while the big boys mature. Best from 2019 through 207. 6,583 cases made. "–JM (Mar 2018)
