Tasting Note:

Jacques' new wine-making facility is nearly complete and a new era in Le Pin's history is about to start. But their temporary home will be remembered for two monumental wines, the 2009 and 2010. Produced from 100% Merlot from three continuous parcels, with yields of 34 hl/ha. The 2010 has a haunting Richebourgesque quality to it. Aromatic with hints of high toned red berries, cut flowers, cherry liqueur, compote fruit, minerals and blueberries. The palate is immense, multilayered and possesses wonderful intensity yet is almost weightless. The flavours are so detailed and the structure is so fine and precise. An ethereal, extraordinary Le Pin with more freshness than the 2009. Immensely complex and seductive. Unparalleled.
