Le Pin 1997

Chateau Le Pin

20 years

Le Pin's 1997 reveals an excessive amount of oak for the concentration of fruit. The wine possesses sweet currant and cherry fruit, abundant toasty oak, and a seductive style, but the oak is elevated. It will probably not last long enough for the wood to become fully integrated. Or, am I wrong about that? Anticipated maturity: now-2008. *** Le Pin's evolved 1997 displays complex aromatics consisting of roasted coffee, smoke, Provencal herbs, sweet kirsch liqueur, and black cherry fruit. In the mouth, the wine is round, with a velvety texture, low acidity, and excellent concentration and length. It is a succulent, juicy, captivating style of wine to consume during its first 10-11 years of life.

Chateau Le Pin

Chateau Le Pin is a world famous wine growing estate based in Bordeaux, France. Falling under the directives of the Pomerol appellation, this relatively small chateau is on the right bank of the Gironde estuary. Although miniscule in terms of size, when compared with the other wine estates in Bordeaux, France – Chateau Le Pin consistently produces the world’s most expensive and highly rated red wines.

 

The name Le Pin is derived from a solitary pine tree that grows near the winery, and as of 2012 the estate spans a mere 2.7 hectares. Le Pin bottles and cases are a constant presence in the wine market, fetching high prices year after year; a fact that is somewhat justified by the fact that only around 700 cases are produced each year.
