Lovely rich nose, broad, open, fresh flowers, creamy generous style, grips well, an elegant balanced La Pointe, not a block buster at all but will show well early and keep well too.

Rating : 91-93/100

Mid crimson. Rich and sweet. Some dried-fruit character - a bit like currant wine! Drying finish.

Rating : 16/20

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.

Rating : 91-93/100

Fragrant, zesty, dark fruit aroma and flavour. Fresh on the palate but with an opulence. Tannins finely honed – lighter framed but very pure and precise. Should be good value.

Rating : 90/100
