The history of Château Pibran
Pibran is an old Médoc name. lts higly renowned vineyard covers one of the finest outcrops of Pauillac. The estate, which was originally just 10 hectares, was expanded in 2001 following the purchase of the neighbouring property of Château Tour Pibran to reach the current size of 17 hectares of superb Garonne gravel soil.
The attractive charterhouse, built at the end of the 19th century, can be seen as one leaves Pauillac toward Cissac, perched on a slight hill surrounded by a tree-shaded garden. For a long time, it has belonged to the Billa family who sold it to AXA Millésimes in 1987. The vineyard was restructured after the purchase to enable the terroir to reach its full potential. The vineyard is now planted with 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet-Sauvignon.
