2015 L`If (St-Emilion)

Media Reviews

Jancis Robinson

Same owners as Le Pin. 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. Fifth vintage under Jacques Thienpont`s ownership. 2012 was the first vintage sold en primeur. Lots of replanting. Only 4 out of 8 ha in production, of which only 2 ha made L`If in 2015. Blackish crimson. Very dense and intense - with some polish and masses of seduction. Rich and powerful. Sort of like a cross between a St-Émilion and a Le Pin in terms of texture. Powerful. Lots of freshness as well as the seduction. Definitely the best so far! 17 points

The gentle Le Pin touch is increasingly evident in the wines from this four-hectare St. Emilion property. Floral, elegant and well balanced, this is textured and sweet, with striking oak integration, notes of blueberry, plum and orange zest and fine-grained tannins. Drink. 2022-30. 94 points
