In great vintages, second wines from pedigree Chateauxs are always a safe bet, and this is no exception. Pretty open on the nose, indicating its readiness, while hidden tannins and iron/blood-like flavours on the palate suggests waiting is clever, as it’s still one dimensional and needs time to fully express itself.

The 2015 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is dense, powerful and quite juicy, with plenty of black cherry, menthol, licorice and smoke overtones nuances that all build in the glass. Polished and racy to the core, the 2015 is a terrific choice for drinking over the next decade or so. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2018)

Generally digging all the second wines I've tried of the 2014 vintage. Drinking nicely so young.

Deep ruby, violet color, full bodied. Creme de cassis and tobacco dominant on the nose, with black cherry, blackberry, raspberry, liquorice, cedar box, mocha. Black chocolate, mocha, liquorice and black fruits on the palate. Bone dry, more grip than Reserve de la Comtesse 2012. Some green component, 30s+ finish. 13% alc. 2012 vintage

Dinner with some dear friends at Lucio’s BYOB. Two couples, each couple brought 3 bottles.

Another one of my contributions. Didn’t take nearly as long to open up as the last bottle of this I had 👌🏻 paired nicely with short rib & risotto.
