Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 18.5

Tasted blind. Rich, dense, reverberant. Lots going on there! Tastes as though it were biodynamic. Really builds on the finish. [22/01/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2027-2047

Vinous – 97

The 2016 Le Pin was cropped at 28hl/ha and bottled at the end of June 2018. Fiona Morrison opined that the rain from January to June suited Le Pin’s gravelly soils, perhaps more than the previous vintage. This has an extremely pure, nuanced bouquet that unfolds swirl by swirl, revealing black cherries, crushed violet petals, hints of raspberry coulis and a touch of vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well focused and almost symmetrical. The 14.5° alcohol is one of the highest levels for Le Pin, though it is completely disguised. There is firm structure and grip to the uncharacteristically masculine finish that suggests it will require several years in bottle. [Neal Martin, 24/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2050

Robert Parker – 98+

The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Le Pin is still very closed, revealing glimpses of preserved plums, blackberry pie and raspberry compote plus suggestions of potpourri, star anise, tobacco, fenugreek and stewed tea plus a waft of hoisin. The medium-bodied palate is opulent, rich and plush with layers of black and red fruit preserves and loads of exotic spice accents, finishing very long and very decadent. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 30/11/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2070
