Located in the heart of the Pomerol Plateau, Château Le Pin benefits from a combination of gravelly, clay and sandy ground that gives to the Merlot, the sole grape type used in this prestigious wine, its best expression. Despite its microscopic size, only 2.7 hectares, Le Pin is one of the most famous wines in the world, playing in the same galaxy as its mythical neighbor Petrus.
Property of the Thienpont Family since 1979, Le Pin produces a maximum of 5000 bottles per year. This scarcity contributes to the legend of Le Pin and makes it one of the most sought for wine in the world, with prices around and above € 1000 per bottle. Le Pin’s fame is also due to the hard work of Jacques Thienpont and his wife, the wine expert Fiona Morrison who is in charge of the wine making process since 1999. The wine is made in small stainless steel vats and matured during 18 months in new oak barrels.
