2010 La Pointe, Pomerol

SKU #1272513 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Big, firm, with dense tannins that underly the ripe, dark berry and plum skin fruit flavors. Very powerful, the almost shocking acidity a cutting edge of freshness. Hugely juicy aftertaste. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has power in reserve, but stays remarkably restrained for now, with a torrent of boysenberry, fig and raspberry fruit held in check by charcoal-studded grip and well-embedded acidity. The long, dense smoked apple wood finish should let this cruise nicely in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good, full ruby-red. Raspberry, smoke and flowers on the nose; more obviously oaky today than some recent vintages at this stage. Bright and juicy on the palate, with solid underlying structure to the floral red berry, black plum and lead pencil flavors. Finishes clean and long, with smooth, creamy tannins. La Pointe is one of the most improved Pomerol estates in recent years and its wines offer plenty of charm and early drinking appeal. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Cake, blackcurrants and softened tannins. Gentle structure, intense fruit. Modern and big. (RH) Inner quote mark (11/2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 is good example of this wine, which has tended to be somewhat light and often diluted in the past, but things seem to be looking up at La Pointe. Generously fruity, its loads of cherry, strawberry and mulberry notes, along with subtle loamy soil scents and a hint of underbrush are followed by a spicy, earthy, medium-bodied wine with soft tannins as well as excellent fruit and texture. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)
