(91–93 points) Barrel sample. Firm tannins guard the ripe blackberry flavors on this rich wine. Spice and sweet tannins add to the intensity.

The 2012 La Pointe has fresh, wild berry, cranberry, incense and wild heather aromas that unfurl in the glass, a touch of black truffle emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is still some new oak to be absorbed, but it is well balanced with good acidity, notwithstanding what you might describe as a "solid" structure towards the finish. It is a very fine Pomerol, though my advice is to wait 4-5 years to get the most from Eric Monnoret's fast-improving Pomerol. Tasted March 2016. - Neal Martin
