1989 Le Pin Bordeaux - 96 Pts!

Le Pin is a tiny 2.7-hectare (6-acre) property in the Pomerol district of Bordeaux. It was created in 1979 by the Thienpont family (owners of nearby Vieux Château Certan), and quickly rose to prominence to vie for the title of most expensive wine in the world.

The 100 percent Merlot wine is extremely concentrated and lush; it can often be drunk young but is best with a decade of aging.

The Le Pin vineyard is south-facing and sits on well-drained gravel and sand soils which give extremely low yields. There is also a small amount of Cabernet Franc planted. However, this not used in the Le Pin wine, and is gradually being replaced by Merlot.

Le Pin is named after two pine trees at the vineyard. There is no true château on the property, though a new winery was opened in 2011, replacing an old farmhouse basement.

Rating 1989 Le Pin Bordeaux - 96 Pts! The 1989's dark ruby/purple color may have slightly more saturation than the 1990. The wine reveals a sweet roasted herb coconut and jammy black currant-scented nose with plenty of smoky new oak. Full-bodied with massive concentration huge layers of glycerin and more noticeable tannin than is found in the 1990 this is a fabulous and fascinating wine as well as one of extraordinary singularity. It is unquestionably a compelling wine. But is it worth the $4000-$6000 a bottle that top vintages of Le Pin were fetching at auctions in late 1997? RP
