Ch La Pointe 2019
Pomerol€ 37.27/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – 93-95/100
The 2019 La Pointe was tasted on three occasions including direct from the property, which is what I use for this tasting note. It has a very attractive nose, initially tightly coiled and demanding coaxing/aeration. It unfurls to reveal blackberry, briary and light shaved black truffle aromas – très Pomerol, perhaps due to increased contribution of Cabernet Franc (24%). The palate is medium-bodied with (and you can quote me on this) the finest tannins and silkiest texture that I have ever encountered from this property. Very fresh from start to finish, this feels cohesive and sophisticated, quite simply the best La Pointe ever. Bravo winemaker Eric Monneret.
