Le Pin 2008 – 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.
This is an elegant, sexy, aromatic style of Le Pin, with a dark plum/purple-tinged color and a seductive nose of caramel, mocha, jammy black cherries and currants, as well as hints of wood and earth. Medium- to full-bodied and round, with no hard edges, this lush style of wine should drink nicely for another years or more.
