Tasting Notes

Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. The La Pointe 2010 has a well-defined, very classic Pomerol bouquet with fine delineation and poise: blackberry, black truffle, smoke and a slight ferrous note. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, ripe and quite bold tannins that lend this Pomerol real backbone. It builds in the mouth to a lovely black truffle and graphite-tinged finish that sits comfortable between Pomerol and Pauillac in style. This is an excellent wine from "L'Equipe Monnoret". Tasted November 2012.

Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2013

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.
