Wine AdvocatePierre Lurton, the director of Cheval Blanc, has completely resurrected this estate since it was acquired by the owners of Cheval Blanc. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc grown in clay and gravel soils, the 2009 La Tour du Pin is the finest wine I have ever tasted from this property. It reveals terrific fruit intensity along with a full-bodied unctuosity, great purity, sweet tannins, and a heady, long finish. The alcohol level must be more than 14% given the glycerin content and the wine's thickness. It should drink well for 15+ years.

Wine SpectatorSoft and silky, with round and fine tannins. Medium- to full-bodied, with lovely texture and fresh acidity. Long and inviting. Barrel Tasting.

James Suckling, 2010
