This 2009 is the finest La Pointe ever! We can thank the new owners, who had the foresight to hire Hubert de Bouard as their consultant. This blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc from the relatively sandy soils of this vineyard, situated well-off the tenderloin plateau of Pomerol, has a dense purple color and oodles of plum sauce interwoven with blueberry, raspberry and black cherry notes. Full-bodied, opulent, fleshy and very sexy, it should be drunk over the next decade. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at the Pomerol Syndicate tasting. This is very over-done on the nose with soupy damson and prune aromas, more Languedoc than Pomerol. Chewy, dense palate with firm tannins, desperately needing flesh because somewhere deep down here is some decent fresh, Pomerol fruit. Tasted April 2010.

The milk chocolate and dark fruits on the nose follow through to a full body, with layered tannin and a bright acidity. Tight and structured. Try it in 2016. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Violets, berries and black olive on the nose. Gorgeous. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, juicy finish. Lovely fruit and acidity to this wine. One of the best La Pointes for a long time

Very rich and dense and well integrated on the nose. Thick and sweet yet with sap underneath. Really impressive wine. Caresses the palate. Hint of dark chocolate.
