2010 La Conseillante Pomerol

Red Blend

3 L

Out of stock Now

The 2010 La Conseillante Pomerol 3 L 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 96 points

A brilliant effort from this property, known for the sheer elegance and finesse of its wines, the 2010 La Conseillante offers back-to-back monumental efforts, particularly given the remarkable 2009. This estate has been on a hot streak of late. The 2010 is a slightly bigger, richer wine, but without losing its floral, elegant mulberry, black raspberry and sweet kirsch notes. Combine those with some licorice, subtle new oak and a hint of forest floor, and the result is a medium to full-bodied, rich, complex wine that has striking aromatics and perfect balance in the mouth. Forget it for 3-5 years and drink it over the following 30. - WA, RP (2/2013)

Full red-ruby. Rich aromas of plum, raspberry, mocha and chocolate are energized by minerals and peppery spices. A saline, suave, youthfully restrained midweight, with terrific floral cabernet franc lift contributing to the impression of class and focus. Sweetness is leavened by a savory quality and hints of tobacco and underbrush. Tannins are suave but this firmly structured, subtly long Pomerol really needs eight or ten years to express itself fully. Great potential here.- Stephen Tanzer (07/2013)
