Château Le Pin

This tiny estate was acquired by the Thienpont family in 1924, who are also the owners of Vieux-Chateau-Certan. The vineyard has the highest elevation of any vineyard in Pomerol. The grapes are normally harvested later than Petrus. What makes this wine unusual is that the primary or alcoholic fermentation of the wine occurs in new oak casks. This is only possible with a small production of wine that can be constantly monitored.
