Elaborated since the 2019 vintage, this Pauillac is a fruity, supple and well-balanced wine. The grapes making up the blend of this cuvée come from young vines in the Tour Pibran and Château Pichon Baron vineyard, with clay-limestone and gravelly soil.

These grapes are harvested, vinified and aged by the Château Pichon Baron team. They produce this Pauillac with the same standards of quality as their other wines in order to highlight this appellation


80% Merlot – 20% Cabernet-sauvignon

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vintage Conditions: 2019 was marked by a rainy spring and start to June, followed by a hot, dry summer. Cool spring temperatures alleviated the virulence of the mildew, and the year’s favourable weather conditions created an environment free from the threat of cryptogamic infection.

The rapid warming of the soil at the end of winter led to steady and even budburst, with slow growth. Unfortunately, these cool spring conditions were not favourable to flowering and caused moderate coulure, except in our earliest-ripening terroirs.

The last ten days of June gave way to hot and dry summer weather punctuated by some rain in late July and early August. The sunshine and heat stimulated the fruit aromas of the Cabernets and the concentration of polyphenols in the skins.

Limited water during ripening accelerated sugar concentration and the breakdown of acids and increased the grapes’ phenolic potential. These conditions were also favourable to the quality of the tannins. Mid-veraison was reached between 4th and 5th August on the early-ripening plots and ended quickly and evenly in mid-August.

The grapes became particularly rich in mid-September due to the hot, dry conditions, then the first rains in late September weakened the skins and accelerated the harvest. This very welcome moisture stabilised the sugar concentration and allowed us to continue the harvest more serenely. 2019 was characterised by high potential alcohol content and low total acidity (little malic acid).

Ageing: 100% from barrels of one vintage, for 12 months. Bottling: May 2021

Tasting Note

This Pauillac 2019 reveals a great ruby colour. The nose is discrete and elegant offering red fruits and pepper aromas but also spices notes. On the palate, the attack is smooth and direct leading to a fruity and mineral finish. Fresh and precise, this wine can be enjoyed now.

Food pairing

Great with lamb cutlet, venison, poultry, and wild mushroom fricassee.
