The 2014 Chateau Pibran wine is soft, pleasant and quite pretty. Sweet tobacco, earthy notes, smoke, iron and cedar add attractive savory underpinnings. 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. This Pauillac wine has balance and beauty.
This 2014 Chateau Pibran is a bit unusual in that the blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot rather than the more typical 50/50.
