The 2015 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is medium to deep garnet-purple in colour with a nose of black currants, black cherries and mulberries with earth, tar and meat suggestions. The medium-bodied palate is firm with a muscular core of the earth and herbs-accented fruit and a long finish.

Source: Winemaker,

Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is one of the second wines of the property. Created since the 2012 vintage, it has
a pure and direct character.
The grapes which make up this wine's blend come primarily from gravelly plots of land near the Gironde
estuary, a good environment for Cabernet-sauvignon.
Les Griffons offers a vigorous and fresh tasting experience, full-bodied and clean, overflowing with energy.
It can be laid down in the cellar for over 20 years or enjoyed right away.

TASTING NOTE
The colour is dark; a deep red garnet. The nose is enhanced by fresh fruit, blackcurrant cream and
blueberries with an elegant oaky note. The palate is soft and velvety with delicate, precise tannins. Carried by
the great maturity that emanates from the quality of the fruit, the finish is delectable, elegant and
distinguished. Overall it is opulent yet light.
Jean-Rene Matignon - Technical Director - August 2017

VINTAGE CONDITIONS
Winter rain helped to replenish the water table satisfactorily. Consistent bud break took place in the second
half of April.
Flowering started at the end of May. Thanks to stable weather conditions with very constant temperatures,
the fruit set accelerated in mid-June. Summer started with warm and sometimes scorchingly hot dry weather.
Summer pruning began with leaf and shoot thinning in June and July in order to make the most of this
favourable microclimate. The first significant water stress then helped the skins to thicken and led to early
ripening of the grapes. In these ideal conditions, targeted thinning was carried out early in order to
encourage the assimilation of compounds essential to ensure perfect ripening.
During the last days of July, still dry and hot, the first grapes started to change colour. Stormy periods in
August and September boosted ripening. The skins grew finer and flavours became more expressive. On the
whole, maturity was very consistent. Thanks to firm, strong skins, phenolic maturity progressed without risk
of over-ripening. The harvest took place under optimum weather conditions.
The Merlot was harvested from 18 to 25 September and the Cabernet-Sauvignon from 1 to 9 October.
Perfect soundness combined with a careful selection policy ensured precise vatting of meticulously sorted
grapes.
