Our mission for the past ten years has been to unearth the estate's history, restoring it to its former glory while remaining faithful to the terroir.
Château La Pointe's 2 hectares of grounds and centuries- old trees have made this an outstanding estate for over 150 years. The château's golden age dates back to the 19th century. One of the largest estates in Pomerol, La Pointe underwent a major renovation in 2008 to help express the full potential of the terroir.
To begin with, a detailed soil analysis enabled a better understanding of the terroir and targeted vineyard operations. In keeping with this sense of observation, the elaborate but fascinating renovation focuses more on the method and less on the means. A major renovation of the cellars was also undertaken, making it possible to ferment grapes from each plot separately to fine-tune winemaking, while respecting stringent environmental standards.
