Château Le Pin Beausoleil

LE MAGAZINE DU VIN, Mai 2015
Score: 92/100
La robe es rubis. Il s'élève du bouquet de fines exhalaisons de fumée et de café. L'attaque est cernée par du kirsch et desépices exotiques. En rétro-olfaction guettent de discrètes herbes de Provence et des arômes toastés. La finale est un maquis de fruits cendrés. Un vin souple, racé, à utiliser comme une épice avec des viandes rouges.

Score: 90/100
This gushes with exuberant crushed plum, boysenberry and blackberry fruit, but doesn't turn top-heavy thanks to a well-embedded graphite spine and a long, charcoal-tinged finish. Solid, with grip to match its fruit. Drink now through 2019. 1,333 cases made. –JM (James Molesworth)

Score: 85-87/100
An attractive, easy to drink, fruity wine with lots of kirsch, spice box and herbs, this medium-bodied, supple 2010 is very good for its humble appellation.

Note: Réussites exceptionnelles
Une belle palette aromatique, mûre, légèrement confite (cassis frais, résine). Toucher de bouche soigné et rond. D’une texture juteuse, il tapisse joliment la bouche.

This is minerally, with dried flowers and dark chocolate. Full and tannic, but refined in the end.

Very dark crimson – like most of Derenoncourt’s 2010s. Broad and toasty on the nose. Sweet, sharply chiselled, emphatic start. Edgy and marked by very pronounced acidity at the moment. It may soften but it’s awfully hard work at the moment. Drink 2016-2021

Note: 14,75/20
Vin coloré, au nez discret et fruité, à la bouche tendre, moelleuse, plaisante avec du goût et un mélange de sensations fraîches et mûres. Tannins agréables.

THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER
Score: 88 /100
Easy to drink, medium bodied, uncomplicated, fresh, round wine with ample ripe, sweet cherries and plum notes in the finish. Drink this on the young side. (Tasted Mar 11, 2014)

J.J. BUCKLEY FINE WINES | Annual Bordeaux Report - The 2010 Vintage
Note: 90-92/100
2010 Le Pin Beausoleil (Bordeaux Superieur) - 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. Aged in one third new oak, two thirds used oak. 4.6 hectares planted in clay and limestone soils, average vine age 35 years. Alcohol 15%. This dense wine showcases loads of forward creamy black fruit, a touch of fresh earth and an underlying sense of minerality. Big and packed, the tannins build in the back but still keep a sense of freshness with high-toned acids. This will likely need another 3-5 years in bottle to tame the acids and drink well over the following 5-7 years.
