The 2014 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron felt very muted on the nose despite coaxing from the glass. Eventually, it reluctantly reveals scents of blackberry and raspberry pastilles, a touch of warm gravel/bricks underneath, though I would like more vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, an elegant Pauillac for certain with silky smooth tannin and very well-judged acidity. Perhaps the growing season deprived it of the substance, yet this feminine wine should drink well for a decade or more.
