2018 La Pointe, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1414892 93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a very solid La Pointe with tight and powerful tannins, backing up the ripe and dark fruit. Big, full and juicy. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Cassis and cherry preserve flavors are flanked by apple wood and anise notes, with a light sanguine hint on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now. (JM, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 La Pointe needs some coaxing from the glass, eventually offering scents of blackberry, truffle oil, hints of mint and violet. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe black fruit mixed with cedar and graphite, nicely focused with a gentle grip on the finish. I appreciate the spiciness that lingers on the aftertaste and it should evolve into a fine Pomerol. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is rather lovely, if a little sweet, and a little lighter than the 2016 at this property with floral notes and some extremely juicy ripe red fruits. There is no doubt that this estate has improved unquestionably over the past decade and here delivers another enjoyably juicy La Pointe, the concentration and balance just perhaps a little more impressive in the 2016 vintage. 25% of the vineyard has now been replanted at 8,500 vines per hectare, a significantly higher density than the previous 6,200v/ha. Drinking Window 2025 - 2036 (JA) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 La Pointe has a deep garnet-purple color and quite a cedary nose to begin over a core of warm black cherries, blackberry pie and spice cake plus nuances of mossy bark, pencil shavings and smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, chewy texture and soft freshness enveloping the muscular, savory layers, finishing a little drying. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
