Château La Pointe has always produced quality wines, yet held a reputation among wine professionals that it still had considerable improvement potential. So when Eric Monneret became director of the property in 2008, everything was done in order to give new vitality to Château La Pointe. Several important projects were carried out in order to express all the vineyard richness: soil studies and drainage works offering substantial increase of the grapes quality, rigorous plot by plot selection in order to optimize soil diversity and reveal the fineness of the Right Bank grape varieties. The renovation of the vat-room has also made possible a winemaking process capable of enhancing the characteristics of each plot. Mr. Monneret also engaged the services of a new consulting winemaker, Hubert De Boüard, co-owner of Château Angelus. The whole strategy of energizing was soon rewarded, positioning Château La Pointe as one of the most important properties in Pomerol.
