- Closure: Cork
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.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate #206 April 2013
This is really well done with blueberry, mineral and dark chocolate character. Full body, with firm tannins and a long, intense finish. Excellent for the year.
Bright and pure, with a creamy core of plum, cassis and boysenberry fruit lined with anise and sweet toast. Not overdone at all, this shows solid weight.
