Château la Pointe 2010 Barrel sample Red (Pomerol)
92-94 Big, firm, with dense tannins that underly the ripe, dark berry and plum skin fruit flavors. Very powerful, the almost shocking acidity a cutting edge of freshness. Hugely juicy aftertaste.
Château la Pointe 2009 Red (Pomerol)
Dark and concentrated, this has upfront tannins, followed by powerful, ripe black fruits. With its solid, chunky character, it will always be a massive, blockbuster wine.
Château la Pointe 2006 Red (Pomerol)
Very rich, almost soupy, this is an enjoyable wine, not hugely structured and therefore not likely to age long. But in 2–3 years, drink this for its plumy fruits, its dried fruit richness and its light tannins.
