93 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2010 La Tour du Pin is showing incredibly well. A blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc from just over 17 acres, this wine is a sleeper of the vintage. It offers up loads of blueberry, black raspberry and boysenberry fruit, stunning opulence, freshness and precision, despite its flesh and fat. Pure, fragrant and -open for business,- so to speak, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 10-15 years.
The world wine market hasn’t caught up to the quality of this estate, which is now owned by the proprietors of Cheval Blanc and operated under the administration of the same staff that produces that outstanding Bordeaux.
Stored in a professional climate controlled wine facility on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since release.
