About Chateau Le Pin is actually the antithesis of the grand estates of the Medoc in that it is possibly one of the smallest vineyards in the whole of Bordeaux and does not possess a grand imposing chateau at the heart of its vineyards or really have much of a history. Yet it imposes itself on the Bordeaux landscape as the ultimate “garagiste” producer making exotic, concentrated wine that must be tasted to be believed. With extremely low production volume, it sells for over a thousand pounds per bottle.
