91-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012

(100% merlot, harvested on September 12 and 13; 3.7 pH; 35 h/h; 13.3% alcohol):  Opaque ruby-purple.  Brooding nose hints at very pure cassis, violet and milk chocolate.  Dense, rich and serious, with deep cassis and mineral flavors firmed by noble tannins.   Very long and pure on the aftertaste.  Considering the amount of gravel in the soil here, Le Pin has done a standout job in 2011. This is the year the estate inaugurated its small new chai designed by Belgian architect Paul Robbrecht, with seven stainless steel vats ranging between 15 and 45 hectoliters in capacity.  Jacques Thienpont told me that this will allow for greater precision in harvesting the property's various parcels.
