This is a slight downgrade for this wine but I suspect it will bounce back as it clearly needs more time. It was more reserved than I thought it would be as Le Pin tends to be one of the more extravagantly rich flamboyant... This is a slight downgrade for this wine but I suspect it will bounce back as it clearly needs more time. It was more reserved than I thought it would be as Le Pin tends to be one of the more extravagantly rich flamboyant wines of Pomerol. The one time I tasted the 2000 it had a dense ruby/purple color aggressive new oak loads of coconut vanilla and spice box enormous concentration and thickness but this is an estate where I thought their subsequent year 2001 was an even better wine. This wine displays some firm tannins in the finish and should be forgotten for another 5-6 years. So much for Le Pin not aging well. This one has at least 25 years left in it.

This is so Richebourg DRC.--Le Pin non-blind vertical... ...Soft and plummy with chocolate berry and mineral. Full--bodied with velvety tannins and a round finish. Starting to open.
