(tasted from cuve Classic Le Pin perfume of raspberry, cocoa powder and toasty oak, with an ineffable topnote of orange peel. Wonderfully delicate and precise in the mouth, with flavors and texture that reminded me of great Burgundy. The vibrant, utterly pure flavors of crushed raspberry, minerals, flowers and spices go on and on on the aftertaste, which does not show the oaky torrefaction of the young 2005. A great and subtle expression of merlot on the Pomerol plateau. I am not sure that the 2005 will surpass this.

[There are all of 500 cases of this to go round and the Pin cellar is looking unusually full after last year?s zero production.] Extremely deep purple with a crimson rim. Explosively sumptuous nose with lots of freshness and floral scents. Rich and round with the merest suggestion of a corset of very fine tannins. Not nearly as opulent on the palate ? big, round and meaty with a very dry, quite sudden finish.
