Le Pin 300cl (Ex Chateau) 2007
Le Pin is one of the newer names of Bordeaux having only made its debut in 1979. Owned and operated by the Thienpont family (of Vieux Château Certan), production is truly miniscule by Bordeaux standards and it is one of the most highly sought-after wines in the world. 2007 was a complex vintage and this is a slightly lighter, more elegant version of a wine that is often characterised by its flamboyance and opulence. A better vintage for enjoying younger, this is now in its optimum drinking window.
