Ruby with a notably pale rim. Harsh, awkward nose with some slightly burnt notes and, at the same time, a hint of green. There is certainly no shortage of acidity and yet a certain lack of life on the palate. From this bottle the wine faded fast on the finish and dried out in the glass. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
Tasted at Bipin Desai’s Le Pin vertical in Los Angeles. The ’97 Le Pin has a pleasurable, well-defined nose with raspberry, wild strawberry and cranberry-scented nose – conservative and straight-laced. The palate has quite chewy entry with good acidity, relatively simple compared to other vintages and lacking some tension and poise. Notes of black cherries, redcurrants and hints of tobacco and dried herbs, but it is a Pomerol with just a single emotion, it does not and has no desire to take you, the taster, anywhere of interest. There were 567 cases produced. Drink now-2014. Tasted November 2008. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com
Better than I remember. Shows a slightly pruny character, but has some good plummy fruit. Full and round, soft and velvety. Long. A bit one-dimensional. Ready.--Le Pin non-blind vertical. Drink now. James Suckling,Wine Spectator2008
Le Pin's 1997 reveals an excessive amount of oak for the concentration of fruit. The wine possesses sweet currant and cherry fruit, abundant toasty oak, and a seductive style, but the oak is elevated. It will probably not last long enough for the wood to become fully integrated. Or, am I wrong about that? Anticipated maturity: now-2008. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 128
