Jacques Thienpont was very young when he managed to buy a tiny plot next door to Vieux Château Certan, at the end of the 1970s. He decided right then that his would be a personal wine - a garage wine - made with disarming simplicity and with total devotion to each stage of the production process. The result is that his Le Pin is now regarded as the ultimate in Pomerol wines - the one that wine-lovers continually fight to get their hands on.
Plot selections are made with exceptional precision and in the tasting room the eight parcels, which together make up the property's 2.5ha of vineyards, demonstrate that their differences are entirely complementary.
Le Pin 2018 is a wine of great complexity, with a fresh, floral bouquet full of ripe fruit, and a delicate persistence on the palate.
