2020 Chateau La Pointe

This wine ranks among the top rated Pomerols from the 2020 vintage. It is brilliant ruby and oozes from the glass with an abundance of succulent, red orchard fruits. Juicy red raspberry, pomegranate, currant, red plums, and Morello cherries dominate the core and are nicely wrapped in a layer of rich cream. Also, within the mid-palate is a delicate mix of Asian spices and a whiff of freshness and minerality. It remains under the radar as one of the best values from Pomerol. A brilliant effort. Don’t miss out.
