Château La Pointe's lovely 2 hectares of grounds and centuries- old trees have made this an outstandingly beautiful property for over a century and a half. It gained recognition as an important winegrowing estate in the 19century. One of the largest vineyards in Pomerol, La Pointe underwent a major renovation starting in 2008 in order to enhance its image and achieve the terroir's full potential. A detailed soil survey made it possible to maximise drainage and restructure the vineyards in the interest of quality. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines were uprooted and the yields of Cabernet Franc adapted in order to express the finesse and elegance that make La Pointe one of the mostly highly-reputed wines on the Right Bank. A major renovation of the cellars was also undertaken. This makes it possible to ferment grapes from each plot separately to fine-tune winemaking, as well as respect stringent environmental standards. The internationally respected consultant, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, co-owner of Château Angélus, now shares his expertise with the Château La Pointe team.
