Paul Pibran Billa renamed the estate, using his middle name of Pibran. While the property is young by Bordeaux standards, the modern era begins when the estate was sold to the AXA group.

"The birth of Château Pibran dates back to the start of the 20th century. The estate was bought in 1941 by Paul Pibran Billa in 1941. Paul Pibran Billa renamed the estate, using his middle name of Pibran. While the property is young by Bordeaux standards, the modern era begins when the estate was sold to the AXA group.

"Château Pibran was purchased by the AXA group in 1987 from the Billa family. At the time of the purchase, Jean Michel Cazes was in charge of managing the estate for AXA. The AXA group invested a lot of money in Pibran starting in 1988. Most of the vineyards were replanted and a new drainage system was installed. The château was also renovated and new cellars were constructed.

"Christian Seely took over managing Château Pibran in 2000. Château Pibran is in good company with the AXA group who own numerous Bordeaux estates in the Left Bank, Pomerol and Sauternes as well as other wineries in Portugal and Hungary. They count among their holdings Château Pichon Baron in Pauillac , Château Suduiraut in Sauternes and Château Petit Village in Pomerol.

"Since Château Pibran was obtained by the AXA group, serious amounts of money have been invested in the vineyards, winemaking facilities and château in an effort to revitalise Château Pibran. In 2001, the AXA group enlarged the estate with the purchase of additional vines in Pauillac when they obtained the neighbouring estate, Château La Tour Pibran."

92 Very floral and vivid on the nose with lovely ripe Cabernet character that showcases currants and berries. Full body, tight and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Love the balance and beauty.
