James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2015
This is the essence of Le Pin with incredible silk texture and beautiful fruit. A berry, sweet-tobacco, chocolate and dusty undertone. It reminds me of many wonderful and underrated Le Pins of the 1980s like 1985 or 1986... This is the essence of Le Pin with incredible silk texture and beautiful fruit. A berry, sweet-tobacco, chocolate and dusty undertone. It reminds me of many wonderful and underrated Le Pins of the 1980s like 1985 or 1986. What a wine. Better in 2018. But who can wait? Cystal clear. It’s like the 2001 that was always better than 2000.

Stunning, with a focused beam of raspberry confiture defining the experience, while anise, blackberry coulis, black tea and incense notes fill the edges. The backdrop is a deep purple velvet curtain, while a long graphite element on the finish melds seamlessly with the lingering raspberry flavors. Delivers breathtaking opulence and definition. Best from 2017 through 2030. From France. — J.M.

A compelling, totally arresting wine, the 2012 Le Pin boasts superb texture, unctuousness and pure voluptuous beauty. The 2012 is effortless in the way it opens up in the glass, with generous sweet red cherry, plum, iron, smoke and licorice. Perhaps not as rich as some previous vintages, the 2012 is nevertheless racy and quite expressive, even at this early stage.
