Château Le Pin
SUMMARYChâteau Le Pin is a top-class Bordeaux wine estate, ranked among the best in its appellation. Wine produced from Château Le Pin is consistently some of the most expensive wine in the world. It is located in the hamlet of Catusseau and has been owned by descendants of the same family since 1979. It was originally founded by Nicolas Potel under Napoleon III rule, who purchased it for 50,000 francs after his winemaking experience at Château Cheval Blanc. The vineyard was eventually sold to Jacques Thienpont, the owner of Vieux Château Certan in 1979. Since then, Thienpont has worked to improve both vineyard management techniques and grape quality in order to maintain the quality of this iconic vineyard, producing wines that are full-bodied with great ageing potential.
