2020 Château La Pointe  (Pomerol) 93

Lush, round, soft, silky and fresh, the wine is supple and sexy. There is a depth of flavor, opulent textures and a richness to the finish that holds your attention. This is a big step up in quality for La Pointe. The wine should age for 2 decades with ease. 92-94 Pts

2018 Château La Pointe  (Pomerol) 92

Substantially better in the bottle than in barrel, the wine shows much more weight and richness. Espresso, cherries, spice and cocoa create the core of this medium bodied, forward, soft, elegant, fresh, red plum and cherry filled wine. You can drink this on the young side, or age it for more earthy nuances. 92 Points

La Pointe From an assemblage of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the wine opens with stony, plummy aromas. Soft textured and solid, this chateau gets a little better each year thanks to efforts of Hubert de Bouard who is consulting the property. 87-89Pts 88 Points

2009 Château La Pointe  (Pomerol) 90

Better than expected, the ripe, lusciously textured plums with their earthy nature, coupled with the cocoa, licorice and espresso topped nuances hits the spot. You can drink this today with pleasure. 90 Points

Popped and poured, plums, black raspberry and chocolate scents, medium bodied, round textures, a bit of overipness and warmth in finish make this a top value from Pomerol, a region which has a well deserved reputation for being very expensive. If you're looking for value here, this is a good choice. Drink this in the first decade of life. 89 Points

2000 Château La Pointe  (Pomerol) 85

Medium bodied, simple, light, earthy, stoic, almost austere wine, that is past maturity and starting to lose its fruit. This requires consumption before the remaining cherry notes are gone. 85 Points
