An Exceptional Red Wine from Pomerol

Chateau La Pointe is a red wine produced in the Pomerol appellation. The vineyard covers a total area of 23 hectares, composed of mainly clay and gravel soils. The 2016 blend is composed of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc. This year the conditions were unbelievable, with miraculous downpours that stopped just before flowering. The summer drought made it possible for the grapes to produce wines with great tannic potential, while the cool nights were able to maintain their acidity and a perfect aromatic expression.

Dense in color with violet reflections, Chateau La Pointe 2016 develops a floral bouquet (violets), wild berriescedardark spices and sandalwood. In the mouth, it is suavefresh and splendidly balanced. The length is incrediblegentle and voluptuous, with a delicious finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
