Rich and layered La Pointe. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Polished texture. Pretty and impressive.
The 2016 La Pointe is a blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc this year. It has a charming, perfumed bouquet with dark cherries, red plum and quite intense incense aromas that are well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and well-judged acidity. This is a well-focused, classically styled Pomerol with seams of tobacco towards the persistent finish. This is a very fine Pomerol from Eric Monnoret, in fact, it is the best La Pointe produced so far. (NM)
A very silky, sexy take on the vintage, really demonstrating how they are subtly building delivery of power in La Pointe. The tannins are well defined and pliable, a good support for the black fruits while maintaining the welcoming house style. I really like this wine. The power is subtle but unmistakable and it is clearly going to age well. Hubert de Bouard consults. (JA)
Lively, offering raspberry and boysenberry fruit infused with anise, carried by velvety structure and backed by bright acidity. A light apple wood spine keeps this honest. (JM)
