Ch Pichon Baron, ​Les Griffons de Pichon Baron 2021 Pauillac

16

45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot. Aged for 18 months in barrel (40% new). This cuvée, a true second wine, represents 24% of the estate’s production. Cask sample.
Not the deepest crimson, with shocking-pink rim. Really very seductive nose. Round and silky-textured. Real drive here. Relatively light in weight. But decent balance and a bottle that tastes like a classic second wine in a not-desperately-but-not-disastrously-ripe vintage. Very clean and fresh. Should be approachable relatively early.
