Reviews for 2010 La Pointe Bordeaux Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
Muscular with raspberry and plum sauce notes pushed by velvety but substantial tannins. The long finish is filled with roasted fig and spice. One of the bigger Pomerols in 2010. -J.M.

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol and twice at the UGC. There is good vigour on the La Pointe 2010 this being the first vintage vinified in their brand new cuverie.

There is good vigour on the La Pointe 2010 this being the first vintage vinified in their brand new cuverie. Very pure dark cherry fruit intermingling with blueberry and cassis well-integrated oak and fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins on the entry good tension and acidity quite a firm backbone adding structure to the finish with blackcurrant pepper soy and small dark cherries. The Cabernet Franc takes over with continued aeration. Good potential. Drink 2015-2020+

2010: The 2010 is a strong effort from this historically underachieving Pomerol thanks in part to the owners hiring well-known consultant Hubert de Bouard.

A blend of 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc that hit 14% natural alcohol reveals copious notes of sweet caramel smoke black cherry liqueur Asian plum sauce and subtle background oak. Opaque ruby/purple-colored medium to full-bodied and well-endowed it should drink nicely for 10-15+ years.

This has an attractive nose that just screams Right Bank - black cherry cassis mocha and tobacco notes lift from the glass. Full bodied and round with layered fruit and caramel flavors there are firm yet sweet tannins and balanced acidity. This wine provides a great definition of terroir and is one to enjoy over the next 10-15 years.
