Marks and reviews
The vineyards of Château La Pointe are planted on a mosaic of gravel and pebble soils, clay-gravel soils and sandy soils on clay or gravel, giving the estate's wines a singular, delicate style. Accompanied by Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, co-owner of Château Angélus, the team at the estate has been working hard since 2008 to develop its growing practices in order to bring out the full potential of this benchmark Pomerol appellation.
This Pomerol wine comes from a 23-hectare vineyard.
A very mild winter advanced early budburst, preceding a period of frost which had little impact on the vineyard. Flowering was rapid and uniform. The vines stood up particularly well to a hot, dry summer, thanks both to the rigorous management of the vineyards by the estate's teams and to the occasional spell of rain. The juices were rich, lively and well-balanced, proof that the harvest had come at the right time.
Château La Pointe 2022 is a blend of Merlot (84%) and Cabernet Franc (16%).
This 2022 vintage stands out for its balance and its wonderful acidic structure.
