Scores and tasting notes


Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. The Le Pin 2007 has a very pure bouquet with cassis, bilberry, blueberry and crushed stone all with superb delineation, but tightly wound at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, lovely caressing texture with seamless tannins, velvety smooth dark cherry and cassis on the finish with filigree tannins. What a lovely, typically seductive Pomerol from Jacques T. Tasted January 2011.

Neal Martin - Wine Journal Nov 2011


This elegant, fruity, slightly herbal Pomerol reveals a light style as well as mocha-infused, caramelized strawberry and black cherry fruit, medium body, and a soft style. It is best consumed over the next 7-8 years.

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Le Pin put in a rather odd showing. There was a slight metallic tincture on the nose that appeared to dissipate with aeration. Aromas of kirsch, over-ripe satsuma and gravel soon appear but never really coalesce. The palate is better with fine tannin and good depth, although the second half felt a little disjointed, and there was a slight vegetal note lingering on the finish. I have encountered good bottles of the 2007 Le Pin in the past, including a great bottle at Farr Vintners' blind 2007 tasting in March 2015. Here, it is outplayed by many of its Pomerol peers, which is why I leave a question mark against my score. Tasted February 2017.
