Expert Reviews

94-97 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011

(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.

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.
