2008 La Conseillante Pomerol

Red Blend

750 ml

Only 65 Available

The 2008 La Conseillante Pomerol 750 ml is from the Pomerol region of Bordeaux. La Conseillante is a Bordeaux chateau on top of its game, producing wines of great elegance and flavor. Sandwiched between the border of St.-Emilion and Cheval Blanc, and, on the Pomerol side, l’Evangile, Vieux-Chateau-Certan and Petrus, its terroir has a tremendous track record that dates back over 250 years. Currently owned by the Nicolas family, whose ancestors purchased the property in 1871, La Conseillante completely renovated their winemaking facility just prior to the 2012 vintage. They now vinify on a parcel by parcel basis, allowing for more precision, in their new tanks.

Wine Advocate 95 points

The beautiful 2008 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color as well as jammy red and black fruit, crushed rock and floral notes. If this were a Burgundy, one might think of it as a grand cru Musigny. With excellent texture, medium to full body and stunning purity as well as nobility, this fascinating Pomerol should drink well for 15-20 years. - WA, RP (5/2011)

Wine Spectator 91 points

Racy and focused, with a mouthwatering edge to the raspberry ganache, graphite and floral notes, all stretched out by fine minerality on the persistent finish. Very solid. Cellaring should add a touch more. Drink now through 2016. 3,500 cases made. - WS (4/2011)

Vinous (Stephen Tanzer) 88 points

Bright, deep red-ruby. Redcurrant, cherry pit, cola, sassafras, minerals and a whiff of pepper on the nose. Rather clenched in the middle palate, with a slightly dry, cyanic quality making it tough going today. Shows a hint of nutty oak in the middle and finishes slightly tart. - IWC 88+ (8/2011)
