Château Pibran, now under the guidance of Jean-Michel Cazes of Lynch-Bages, produces with good complexity,weight and concentration. Its 9.5 hectares of vineyards stretch across a well-drained gravel bank and border those of Mouton-Rothschild, Lynch-Bages and Pontet Canet. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
The wines are vinfied at Pichon-Baron. Fermetation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and the wine is matured for 12-15 months in barriques (50% new). Pibran is classified as a cru bourgeois but is now producing wines the equal of many of its more highly classified neighbours.

Benefiting from the skills of the winemaking team at Pichon-Baron under Jean-Réné Matignon, and Christian Seely's astute leadership, this super wine is really punching above its weight in 2005. There is an incredible energy and depth of fruit here with the generous and pretty summer pudding flavours supported by excellent acidity. The team here can be very proud in making such a generous and pretty wine which boasts fine tannins and considerable sex appeal.
