Le Pin 2005 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
While I would not rank the 2005 Le Pin as highly as the 2001, 2000, 1998, 1989, 1983, or 1982, it is still a beautiful wine offering a deep ruby/purple color along with an open-knit nose of caramel, coconut, coffee, melted chocolate, and sweet, jammy black cherry and currant fruit. The alluring fragrance is followed by an opulent, luscious Pomerol with flamboyant flavors of ripe black fruits intermixed with hints of roasted herbs, meat juices, plums, and Asian spices. Unfortunately, the worldâãs billionaires quickly gobble up Le Pinâãs 500 cases, even at preposterously high prices. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.
