The 2010 is good example of this wine, which has tended to be somewhat light and often diluted in the past, but things seem to be looking up at La Pointe. Generously fruity, its loads of cherry, strawberry and mulberry notes, along with subtle loamy soil scents and a hint of underbrush are followed by a spicy, earthy, medium-bodied wine with soft tannins as well as excellent fruit and texture. Drink it over the next decade. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol and twice at the UGC. There is good vigour on the La Pointe 2010, this being the first vintage vinified in their brand new cuverie. Very pure dark cherry fruit intermingling with blueberry and cassis, well-integrated oak and fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins on the entry, good tension and acidity, quite a firm backbone adding structure to the finish with blackcurrant, pepper, soy and small dark cherries. The Cabernet Franc takes over with continued aeration. Good potential. Drink 2015-2020+ Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Muscular, with raspberry and plum sauce notes pushed by velvety but substantial tannins. The long finish is filled with roasted fig and spice. One of the bigger Pomerols in 2010. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Dark crimson. Friendly, slightly oaky, sweet, not that complex but easy to like. A little mild and subdued on the palate. Not the most ambitious but not the most exaggerated either. Light green notes on the finish. jancisrobinson.com

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. winecellarinsider.com

This deep ruby purple coloured La Point has gorgeous aromatics and lovely texture. Flavours of ripe blackberries and plums are enhanced by spices and cedar notes. A fabulous wine that is complete even at this very young stage of its life - flamboyant spices and mouthfilling ripe fruits are supported by firm acidity and generous tannins. This will no doubt be one of the great value Pomerols of 2010. asianpalate.com

A rather nice nose of red fruit and coffee/oak. Firm but with nice round tannin and a generous dollop of fruit.
