Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2013 La Pointe is missing fruit intensity on the nose as is commonplace this vintage. It feels earthy and perhaps a little subdued. The palate is better with crisp, quite sharp red cherry and strawberry notes on the entry. The tannins are quite fine and there is no sense of under-ripeness on the finish. This is an easy-drinking La Pointe to enjoy over the next 6-8 years, what you might call a decent stab in a very difficult growing season.
