2011 Château Pibran, Cru Bourgeois Pauillac
One of the rather pleasant surprises of this vintage. Tasted at Pichon-Longueville, this showed incredibly well. Made of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is immediately open and fragrant on the nose, with notes of white flowers alongside cassis and plum. On the palate, this seems effortlessly balanced: a core of ripe attractive fruit hemmed in by very fine tannins and a zip of acidity. Incredibly charming, it won us all over.
