Le Pin, Pomerol, 2021

Tasting Note:

Jacques is handing the day-to-day oversight of all his estates to Diana Berrouet Garcia, formally of neighbouring Chateau Petit Village. As has been the case with recent vintages, Le Pin is a bit more reserved and serious than Petit Jacques' wines of old. Somewhat dialled back aromatics of plums, exotic spices and cedar introduce a velvety wave of beautifully textured fruit. As one would expect from this address where the "terroir loves Merlot", the fruit is seamless, round and generous, yet the acidity keeps this vibrant and focussed. Although utterly seductive from barrel, we have no doubt this possesses the gravitas required for aging. A beautifully nuanced and refreshing Le Pin. 100% Merlot (as usual).
