Château-La-Pointe Pomerol 2009
Wine SpectatorRather dark and reticent, with bittersweet cocoa and licorice snap notes blocking off the core of ripe plum and boysenberry fruit, while the tarry undertow emerges more on the finish. A powerfully rendered 2009 Pomerol that will need cellaring to assimilate. Best from 2014 through 2027. 8,330 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastDark and concentrated, this has upfront tannins, followed by powerful, ripe black fruits. With its solid, chunky character, it will always be a massive, blockbuster wine.
