La Pointe 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 is a strong effort from this historically underachieving Pomerol thanks in part to the owners hiring well-known consultant Hubert de Bouard. A blend of 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc that hit 14% natural alcohol reveals copious notes of sweet caramel, smoke, black cherry liqueur, Asian plum sauce and subtle background oak. Opaque ruby/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied and well-endowed ...89-91" WA 05/11 "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...91-94 (BT)" WS Web Only 2011
