The formation Château La Pointe dates all the way back to the middle of the 19th century. The estate found the inspiration for its name due to the unusual, triangular shaper of their Pomerol vineyards. Pomerol is the smallest appellation in Bordeaux. Perforce, most of the estates in Pomerol are understandably small. That is not the case with Château La Pointe, which is the third largest property in the Pomerol area with 23 hectares. Only Château de Sales and Château Nenin are larger. In fact, Château La Pointe is so big, it takes up more than 2% of the entire Pomerol appellation!
