Chateau La Pointe 2009

Chateau La Pointe 2009

Ref: A043809


Société Generali bought the 22 hectare la Pointe from long-standing owners, the d'Arfeuiile family, in 2007 and there has been a very perceptible up-turn in quality with the appointment of Eric Monnert as director and winemaker and Hubert de Boüard of Angelus as consultant. We have never been very enthusiastic about the wines produced under the d'Arfeuille regime but we were bowled-over by the quality and obvious change in the 2009. Monnert has ripped up the slow-ripening Cabernet-Sauvignon and severely reduced the yields of the Cabernet Franc, giving the wine an added dimension and balance. Very full and sweet with a black fruit nose with hints of spice. Very sensual and appealing. Drink 2015 to 2025

Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2012
Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.


Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
