Tasting Note:

Tasting at Le Pin is a simple affair: no car park, no tasting room, just a concrete cellar and a pipette in a barrel, spitting into a drain. But this is part of the wine’s unique character, and the anticipation of savouring this rare nectar never disappoints. The 2005, which was cropped at a healthy 32hl/ha and will see 100% new oak as usual, shows a very complex make-up on the nose, a degree of development that is not present elsewhere in this campaign. Rich and balanced, there are elements of chocolate and coffee, tobacco, and almost Burgundian fruit that charm and satisfy in equal measure, and signal that this 100% Merlot wine will mature relatively early.
