2014 La Pointe, Pomerol (Previously $34)

SKU #1316070 92 points James Suckling

 Beautiful dark-fruit and wet-stone aromas follow through to a medium body, integrated and polished tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Always a mineral undertone to this.  (2/2017)

90 points Vinous

 The 2014 La Pointe is soft, pliant and quite tasty, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Ripe red stone fruit, cedar, tobacco and dried flowers add lovely shades of nuance in this open-knit, inviting Pomerol. (AG)  (2/2017)

Wine Spectator

 Pretty, with open-knit raspberry and black cherry compote notes, lined with a modest hint of fruitcake. The silky finish has a graceful feel. Shows good purity, but remains a touch shy on depth in the end. (JM, Web-2017)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
