89-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(100% merlot; 32 h/H; IPT 77; g/l total acidity; ph 3.8;13.5% alcohol):  Bright ruby-red.  Perfumed aromas of blackberry, flowers and chocolatey torrefaction.  Bright and fresh in the mouth, with sweet black cherry and violet flavors that carry through nicely on the persistent back end.  Finishes with slightly tight tannins that will need time to resolve.  Although I love this wine's purity, I found this version of Le Pin to be noticeably less intense than the best recent vintages.  Perhaps the elevage will help flesh it out a bit.
