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.

Consistently one of the glorious wines of the vintage, and far better than its more renowned stablemate Petrus, La Conseillante’s 1985, which has been fully mature since the late eighties, continues to hold at its magical plateau of maturity. The ostentatious aromatics of smoked herbs, sweet raspberry and cherry fruit intermixed with licorice, Asian spice, and truffle soar from the glass. On the palate, the wine is beautifully concentrated, silky-textured, not a blockbuster, more of an elegant, medium-bodied style, but delicious fruit, impeccable balance, and fabulous purity and staying power in the mouth are what great Bordeaux is all about.-RP
