2012 La Pointe

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 90.5 points



A sleeper of the vintage, it exhibits a healthy dark ruby/purple color and the bouquet offers lots of mocha, raspberry, black cherry, incense, lavender and background oak aromas. Medium to full-bodied, plump, rich, dense, pure and well-balanced, it can be drunk over the next 10-12+ years. ||One of the finest wines I have tasted from this property, which is in the process of being reborn, the 2012 La Pointe is composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc grown in clay and sandy soils in the Graves sector of Pomerol. Consultant Hubert de Bouard has exploited the quality of this estate since 2008, and to reiterate, the 2012 may be their best wine to date. Wine Advocate.April, 2013



A wine with a solid core of fruit and dark chocolate, berry and spices on the palate. Full and intense. Very well done. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com



Bitter chocolate and smoke on the nose. The palate is well-defined with good mid-palate weight. Rather grippy on the finish. FINE+RARE
