2018 - Les Griffons de Pichon Baron
- 90-92+ WA- ETA 15/5/2021
The 2018 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot, to be aged 12 months in barriques, 30% new and 70% one year old. Production represents 20% of the harvest this year. Very deep purple-black in color, it comes bounding out of the glass with frisky cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and boysenberries scents followed up by notions of dried Provence herbs, moss-covered bark, charcuterie and tapenade. Full, rich and opulent in the mouth, it has bold black fruit and savory expressions, with firm, grainy tannins and a long, meaty finish. Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Structured yet very fine-tannined with lovely integration and depth of blackberry and blueberry character. Medium to full body. Vivid finish.
