A Pomerol with outstanding depth of fruit and structure for the vintage, featuring chocolate, berry and spice character. Full, velvety tannins. Very polished, too. Need another three or four years to come together.
This is a strong effort from La Pointe, another estate that seems to be producing better and better wines. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 reveals a dense ruby/plum/purple color, a sweet perfume of black raspberries, black currants, licorice and subtle high quality oak, medium to full body, and an expansive, broad, pure texture. Drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade.
Very solid, with a ganache spine supporting the enticing dark plum and fig fruit flavors, while bramble and singed wood spice notes fill in on the finish. Approachable now, this should mellow in the short-term. Drink now through 2021.
Barrel sample. A rounded, soft and rich wine, it shows sweet tannins and a ripe blackberry fruit character. This expression is juicy, ripe and fruity.
