91-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999

Component #1 (vines replanted in 1984): Superripe aromas of black fruits, flowers and minerals; smells like pinot noir from Vosne-Romanee or Nuits-Saint-Georges. Dense, sweet and faintly gamey, with dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. Lovely fat and sweetness. Component #2 (older vines): Bright ruby-red. Less charming but more complex black cherry and spice nose. Dense, layered and quite subtle; not as exuberant or fruit-driven as the younger vines but finishes with extraordinary persistence and excellent grip. A great sample. The blend should make a superb Le Pin.
