Tasting Notes:

Aromas of coffee, meat and plums follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and chocolaty finish. Very delicious. Even better than I remember.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 9,165 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

Soft, fruity, and diffuse, this elegant, lightweight effort is pleasant, but lacks substance as well as follow-through on the palate. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

description Producer information Professional reviews

While recently thumbing through a copy of the “Cocks & Féret” dated 1868, spotted by chance in a Bordeaux antique store, we were proud to see La Pointe named among the “premiers” next to Beauregard, Clinet, Conseillante, Gazin, L’Evangile, Nénin, Petit Village or Trotanoy. We learn that “For many years, Monsieur Grandet has been greatly improving the vineyard and showing great understanding and assiduous care of his vines; thus his wines, previously considered second growths have been sold for almost ten years as first growths.”At that time La Pointe already boasted 23 hectares, and thanks to its splendid Directoire-style mansion was one of the first in Pomerol to be allowed to use the name “Château”. This special status has always contributed to positioning the property among the most important of the appellation. Records show that the property received awards as early as 1882 with a silver medal at the Exhibition of Bordeaux, as well as at the Universal Exhibition of Amsterdam in 1883.Our estate has always produced quality wines, even if wine professionals consider that the “Beauty” was perhaps “Sleeping” for a while. Then in 2007 a change of ownership breathed a new energy into this historic domain, enabling it to express all the potential of its vineyard and re-establish its former prestige.
