The 2012 La Pointe has fresh, wild berry, cranberry, incense and wild heather aromas that unfurl in the glass, a touch of black truffle emerging with time. Plum and blackberry character with a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now or hold. Stylish for the vintage.
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is still some new oak to be absorbed, but it is well balanced with good acidity.
