Chateau Le Pin 2011
|Brand||Chateau Le Pin|
|Grape||Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux Blend|
Caramelized fruit, coffee bean, espresso, black cherry liqueur, licorice and spice aromas jump from the glass of this dark ruby/plum-colored wine. Concentrated and silky-textured, this full-bodied, voluptuous wine is a brilliant example of the 2011 vintage. Give it 2-4 more years in the bottle and enjoy it over the next 15 or more.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
Solidly built, with seamless layers of fig, currant and boysenberry pâte de fruit forming the bulk of the wine, while alluring black tea and ganache notes fill in the background. Big and broad, offering a caressing feel and ample fruit.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
