Le Pin 2002
Tasting Notes Le Pin 2002
One of the candidates for the Pomerol of this challenging vintage, Le Pin's 2002 boasts a deep plum/purple color in addition to sweet aromas of dried herbs, roasted coffee, chocolate, plums, and sweet cherries. This luscious offering possesses terrific fruit, medium body, low acidity, and a long, heady finish. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. It is an amazing wine for the vintage!
Tasted blind at Farr's 2002 Bordeaux tasting. An exotic, ripe bouquet with black cherries, dried orange peel and raspberry coulis with subtle tobacco notes developing with aeration. Superb clarity. The palate is rounded and sensuous, opening up with time, plush and generous with ripe strawberry, cassis and orange zest, but good structure underpinning everything. Great length and persistency, but only just out of the starting blocks. Tasted October 2009.
