"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."

"The La Pointe 2012 has a very well defined bouquet with lifted dark cherry, fresh strawberry and quince scented nose – feminine and nicely poised. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very well integrated oak with a harmonious, sophisticated finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is a great La Pointe that leaves those rustic wines of yore behind. Tasted April 2013."
