CHÂTEAU LE PIN 1998

Pomerol.
scuffed label

Twice rated 100 points by James Suckling for the Wine Spectator. Intense, with fleshy layers of raspberry confiture and plum reduction that rumble throughout, but the structure is so velvety that this winds up stretching out almost languidly when it finally reaches the finish, ending with dried star anise, vanilla flower and a lilting note of singed juniper. Pretty gorgeous, but just a hair behind the '10 in precision.--Non-blind Le Pin vertical. Drink now through 2030. 450 cases made. winespectator.com WS 97
