Lovely chocolate, walnut, black-olive and berry aromas follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a gorgeous, juicy and savory aftertaste. Luscious and pretty. Drink in 2020.

(WS91-94 points) On the darker side, with plum and blackberry notes, but still has some grace, showing hints of black tea and incense weaving through. Has some wood left to soak up, so this should put on weight as it...

Has some wood left to soak up, so this should put on weight as it integrates. - JM

(WA91-93 points) The 2015 La Pointe is a blend of 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc, picked between 27 September for the younger vines for the second wines, and 1 October for the heart of the Merlot, the Cabernet picked 8 and 12 October. Eric Monnoret told me that the 2015 was matured in 50% new oak. It has a comparatively flamboyant bouquet compared to recent vintages of La Pointe, with opulent red berry fruit, kirsch, cassis and patina of tar. The palate is medium-bodied, firm in the mouth at the moment, quite structured, the oak nicely integrated with a slightly savory finish. This is a robust La Pointe, quite spicy in the mouth with a long aftertaste. It will gain more harmony during its élevage. - Neal Martin

The 2015 La Pointe is an attractive, juicy Pomerol to drink now and over the next handful of years. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, licorice, menthol and tobacco build as this fleshy, succulent Pomerol shows off its racy personality. The 2015 has turned out beautifully. There is certainly plenty to like.
