Lots of blue fruit and stone with some slate. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a flavorful finish. Racy and structured at the finish. - James Suckling

The 2019 La Pointe was tasted on three occasions including direct from the property, which is what I use for this tasting note. It has a very attractive nose, initially tightly coiled and demanding coaxing/aeration. It unfurls to reveal blackberry, briary and light shaved black truffle aromas - très Pomerol, perhaps due to increased contribution of Cabernet Franc (24%). The palate is medium-bodied with (and you can quote me on this) the finest tannins and silkiest texture that I have ever encountered from this property. Very fresh from start to finish, this feels cohesive and sophisticated, quite simply the best La Pointe ever. Bravo winemaker Eric Monneret. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Plum and black cherry full-bodied colour, warm and open aromatics for this early stage. Always one of the most welcoming Pomerols, it has tightened up and become more serious over the past decade but retains its ability to charm. Concentrated fruit with some cool crushed mint edge on the finish, firm tannins, good balance. It is pretty restrained overall but I expect this to age gracefully. A little more Cabernet Franc in this than usual (it is traditionally closer to 15%), although similar to 2018. 3.65pH. A yield of 35hl/ha because of a dry summer. Hubert de Boüard consultant. Tasted twice, two weeks apart. - Jane Anson, Decanter

I loved the 2016 from this estate, and the 2019 Château La Pointe looks to be in the same mold (if not better), offering a pure, elegant ,medium-bodied style as well as terrific spiced red and black fruits, chocolate, and Christmas fruitcake-like aromas and flavors. It's going to drink nicely in its youth yet also evolve gracefully. - Jeb Dunnick
