91-93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2007
(harvested on September 18, just after a weekend of rain; Alexandre Thienpont has already decided to eliminate one lot of fruit due to rot and will ultimately produce the equivalent of just 22 hectoliters per hectare) Dark red-ruby. Sexy aromas of medicinal black cherry, violet, licorice and sweet oak. Intensely flavored and spicy but not overly sweet; comes across as less fat and supple today than the VCC but wonderfully aromatic in the middle palate. Still a bit youthfully tough but finishes with noteworthy grip and aromatic persistence. Very serious Le Pin, in a less easy style than the wine from some riper years. Showed a bit more opulence with aeration without any loss of elegance.
