Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92-94

(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.

Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17.5+

[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.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

There are 580 cases of the exotic, flamboyant 2004 Le Pin. Its dense plum/ruby color is accompanied by sweet aromas of kirsch, cassis, smoke, earth, and roasted herbs. Super-opulent for the vintage, it possesses wonderful fruit and glycerin, medium to full body, and a fleshy personality. It should drink well young, yet age nicely for two decades or more. The Pomerol of the vintage?

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Very dark-colored for the vintage, with aromas of dark chocolate, forest fruit and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long finish. Subtle yet stylish, with meat, berry and spice undertones on the aftertaste. 580 cases made.

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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
