Château Le Pin Beausoleil

Yves Beck

Note: 88-91/100
One seriously good Bordeaux Superior, the 2017 Château Le Pin Beausoleil offers an incredibly floral quality as well as ample red fruits, medium-bodied richness, and building minerality. It’s another gem that’s made with the help of consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt.

Note: 89-92/100
The 2017 Le Pin Beausoleil is bursting with striking aromatics and brilliant, chiseled fruit. Medium in body, gracious and impeccably balanced, this Merlot-based Bordeaux Supérieur has class to burn. Best of all, it is a terrific value. Don't miss it. (2017 Bordeaux: Sleepers & Under the Radar Gems)


THE WINE ADVOCATE by Robert Parker
Score: 82-84/100
The 2017 Le Pin Beausoleil is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of baked cherries, preserved red plums and dried mulberries plus a waft of fruitcake. The palate gives a good amount of baked berry flavors with chewy tannins and something of a tart backbone, finishing earthy.

Score: 88 /100
Medium bodied, sweet, ripe and spicy, the tannins are soft, bringing you to a fruit-filled climax that is tantalizing. All this and it sells for less than $20!

Score: 86-87
This shows some good violets and dark fruit, but it’s a little dilute on the palate with easy tannins and a fresh finish.
