Le Pin 2006 – 75cl
1 in stock
A red wine from Bordeaux, France. Le Pin is frequently one of the world’s most expensive red wines. Jacques Thienpont purchased the meagre 1.6 hectares of land for one million francs in 1979. The Thienpoints named their wine Le Pin after a solitary pine tree that shaded the property.
Le Pin produces just 600 to 700 cases each year and its rarity is one of the driving forces behind its high prices. Le Pin produces super-concentrated, decadent, lush and lavishly oaked wines – they can be drunk young but are best with 7-10 years of bottle ageing. Continually receiving high wine ratings from wine critics and produced in extremely small numbers, Le Pin bottles are a constant presence on the wine auction market.
Open with lots of singed cedar and vanilla aromas leading the way for lightly mulled raspberry and blackberry fruit. Dried star anise accents stud the finish, which has slightly brambly grip. Shows pretty impressive flesh and depth for the vintage. Drink now through 2026.
