2011 Château La Tour du Pin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc create the blend. This is an increase in Cabernet from last year, since the Merlot on sandy soil did not achieve the desired level of ripeness. Kirsch, stone and anise scents open to a soft, sweet, ripe black cherry-filled finish with gentle tannins. 90-92 Pts
