Château Tour Pibran Bourgeois Pauillac AOC (Château Pibran 2nd wine)

Pibran is an old Médoc name. Its highly reputed vineyard covers one of the finest outcrops of Pauillac. The estate, which originally had only just 10 hectares, was expanded in 2001 following the purchase of neighbouring property to reach the current size of 17 hectares of superb Garonne gravel soil. For a long time it belonged to the Billa family, who sold it to AXA Millésimes in 1987. The vineyards were restructured shortly after the purchase, and drainage was improved in order to get the best possible effect of the soil on the wine. Today Château Pibran is carefully made by Jean-René Matignon and his team at Château Pichon-Baron, in their state-of-the-art winery. The wine is aged at Château Pibran, where a second wine in made, Château Tour Pibran.
