Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 16th Mar 2020

“Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Pibran gives up notes of redcurrant jelly, baked plum and blackcurrant cordial with ints of stewed tea, fragrant earth and new leather. Medium-bodied, the palate has great vibrancy, with bags of crunchy fruit and a soft texture, finishing with lovely purity.” (91 pts.)

Vinous Mar 2020

“The 2017 Pibran is a juicy, absolutely delicious Pauillac to drink now and over the next decade or so. Sweet tobacco, cedar, licorice, mint and dried cherry add pretty aromatic top notes to round things out. The 2017 is not super complex or structured, but it is a wine of immense pleasure and sensuality. I loved it.” (92 pts.)

Jeb Dunnuck February 26, 2020

“Based mostly on Merlot (68%), the 2017 Chateau Pibran reveals a ruby/purple hue as well as terrific notes of damp earth, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and black cherry and currant fruits. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, and balanced, it’s a terrific 2017 that’s already hard to resist. Drink it over the coming 10–15 years or more.” (92 pts.)


Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren’t typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You’ll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux’s famous dessert wine, Sauternes.


The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
