The year 2018 had two distinct phases. The rainy beginning of the year made work out in the vineyards difficult. It was then from July onwards that the summer arrived, bringing plenty of sunshine until the date of the harvest, which started on September 17 and ended on October 2. The exceptional quality of the fruit already foreshadowed perfect health, with thick skins and beautiful tannins.
A blend of Merlot (74%) and Cabernet Franc (26%), the Chateau La Pointe 2018 offers the experience of a great Pomerol red wine. At the tasting, the vintage sports a beautifully deep and dense color. The intensely aromatic bouquet offers beautiful notes of black fruits and small wild berries. Pretty violet-scented floral notes punctuate the nose, while toasted notes come next. Gourmet and full-bodied, the wine wraps the palate with its generous and deliciously creamy texture. Maintaining a great freshness, the mid-palate displays an elegant structure with perfectly integrated tannins. Offering a feeling of intense freshness, the vintage stretches into an incredibly persistent finish. A great vintage of Chateau La Pointe, promising a beautiful evolution with age.
