Scores and tasting notes


There are 580 cases of the exotic, flamboyant 2004 Le Pin. Its dense plum/ruby color is accompanied by sweet aromas of kirsch, cassis, smoke, earth, and roasted herbs. Super-opulent for the vintage, it possesses wonderful fruit and glycerin, medium to full body, and a fleshy personality. It should drink well young, yet age nicely for two decades or more. The Pomerol of the vintage?

Robert Parker Jr - The Wine Advocate, 28 June 2007


Tasted at Bipin Desai’s Le Pin vertical in Los Angeles. A deep ruby colour. The nose is relatively linear compared to other vintages of Le Pin with red-berried fruit: cranberry, raspberry and traces of tar and dark chocolate. Good definition, albeit a little conservative. The palate is elegant and well balanced with a fine structure, notes of raspberry, cranberry and wild strawberry, a lightweight Le Pin with just a little dryness towards the finish. This is a Le Pin that opts to play it safe and should provide pleasurable medium-term drinking. A comparatively generous vintage of 780 cases. Drink now-2018. Tasted November 2008.
