Le Pin 300cl (Ex Chateau) 2010
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. Made from 100% Merlot, the 2010 is an incredibly opulent and hedonistic release.
Reviewed in March 2020 by Lisa Perotti-Brown in The Wine Advocate, it was awarded a perfect 100-point score with a drinking window of 2020-2065 and was described as “drop-dead gorgeous”.
