"Slightly high-pitched in profile, with a savory note out front, followed by red currant, wet pebble and iron notes. A touch taut, but shows good drive through the finish." -Rated 93, Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Pibran is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 4 and 18 October, and matured in 50% new oak for what will be a total of 18 months. It offers plenty of ripe black cherry and blackcurrant aromas on the nose, a touch of blueberry and a light patisserie (choux pastry?) emanating from the new oak that will be subsumed with time. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin, a structured and more masculine Pibran compared to the 2015 with fine salinity and "bite" on the finish. This will benefit and meliorate throughout its barrel maturation and I am sure it will give 15-20 years of drinking pleasure." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Pibran is a pretty, gracious Pauillac with lovely aromatic lift and purity in its flavors. Medium-bodied and gracious, the 2016 will offer considerable appeal over the near and medium term, with good depth and the freshness that is such a signature of the vintage. In 2016, small berries in the Cabernet Sauvignon led to low yields, so the blend favors Merlot over Cabernet." -Rated 90, Vinous

"This is the best Pibran ever with fantastic depth of fruit and velvety tannins. Gorgeous fruit and richness. Layered and excellent. Dynamite." -Rated 94, James Suckling
