Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94-97

(100% merlot; 3.75 pH; 14.2% alcohol) Good, full ruby. Intense, h ighly perfumed aromas of blackcurrant, red cherry and violet. Juicy, tight and energetic, with very good cut and clarity to its black fruit and sweet spice flavors. Offers superb palate coverage and finishes with smooth, silky tannins. This should age splendidly: drink from 2020 through 2040. Readers should note that the last two vintages of Le Pin have shown less of the opulent, exotic perfume and mouthfeel for which this wine has become famous. Whether this is a stylistic change that is intentional, only time will tell.

Blend from different barrels. Very dark crimson and voluptuous. Lovely combination of richness, savour and freshness. A big step up. Fresh minerality on the finish. Jacques Thienpont was worried about the Merlots, and Alexandre Thienpont encouraged picking here so that he could pick at Vieux Château Certan. Most unusual freshness. Sinewy. Really racy but with great density. Had two Oz oenologists on hand in case they needed help in alcohol reduction but in the event didn’t need to use them. Jacques says he would like to have waited a little longer but the results aren’t too bad, are they?

Made from 100% Merlot (one percent for each rating point I've assigned), this wine is explosively rich and compelling. Dense plum/purple, it boasts the remarkable delineation and freshness that are hallmarks of this vintage. From a much smaller production than normal because of Merlot's poor flowering, the very hot, dry growing and harvest conditions, this is a super-endowed, very rich Le Pin with its exotic new oak largely buried behind its extravagant concentration, power and richness. I don't know what its natural alcohol level is, but I suspect it is pushing 15% in 2010. Rich, tannic, but exceptionally well-endowed, this is a sublime example of Merlot at its very finest. Forget it for 5-7 years (which is somewhat unusual for Le Pin) and drink it over the following three decades.

Delivers the distilled essence of raspberry and kirsch fruit, from the captivating aromas to the racy, palate-coating feel, echoing nearly endlessly through the finish. There's also briar, lightly pebbly tannins and a lingering hint of allspice to give this a shimmering background effect. In the end, this is primarily about the stunning purity of fruit on display.

About This Producer


Chateau Le Pin is owned by the Thienpont family (also proprietors of Vieux Chateau Certan) and has an annual production of about 500 bottles. Le Pin's vineyards are located in the central part of the Pomerol plateau and planted with 90% Merlot grapes and the balance Cabernet Franc. The wines have a ripe, fruit-forward character that typically peak after 15 years of age. Chateau Le Pin takes its name from the presence of a single Pine tree growing on the property.
