95James Suckling

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.

91-93The Wine Advocate

...flamboyant bouquet...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...

91Wine Spectator

An elegant style, with a perfumed edge to the mix of bergamot, cherry preserves and raspberry coulis flavors. Pretty black tea and anise hints run through the fresh finish.

91Vinous / IWC

...attractive, juicy... Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, licorice, menthol and tobacco build as this fleshy, succulent Pomerol shows off its racy personality...


France, Bordeaux, Pomerol

Pomerol is the smallest of Bordeaux’s red wine producing regions, with only about 2,000 acres of vineyards. Located on the east side of the Dordogne River, it is one of the so-called “right bank” appellations and therefore planted primarily to Merlot. Pomerol is unique in Bordeaux in that it is the only district never to have been rated in a classification system. Some historians think Pomerol’s location on the right bank made it unattractive to Bordeaux-based wine traders, who had plenty of wine from Medoc and Graves to export to England and northern Europe. Since ranking estates was essentially a marketing ploy to help brokers sell wine, ranking an area where they did little business held no interest for them. Pomerol didn’t get much attention from the international wine community until the 1960s, when Jean-Pierre Moueix, an entrepreneurial wine merchant, started buying some of Pomerol’s best estates and exporting the wines. Today the influential Moueix family owns Pomerol’s most famous estate, Château Pétrus, along with numerous other Pomerol estates. Pomerol wines, primarily Merlot blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, are considered softer and less tannic than left bank Bordeaux.
