Chateau la Conseillante Pomerol 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The nose is exuberant, with pure violets and berries. Insane. This is so straight and racy, with super fine tannins and a long, long finish. There is a minimalist clarity to the wine. Superb…97-98." JS 4/11. "Remarkable decade for this estate. Quintessentially floral, this dense purple-colored effort reveals sweet flowery black raspberry and blueberry liqueur notes, more power, muscle and concentration than most vintages and exquisite elegance, purity and personality. Serious tannin lurks beneath the surface, but the overall impression is of a medium to full-bodied, strikingly deep, beautifully pure, well-balanced wine...95-98" WA 5/11

Produced from an assemblage of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (which is the same as the vineyard plantings ) the wine is slightly higher in alcohol than what they achieved in 2009 at 14.5% . Due to the high levels of acidity from 3.69 pH there is no sensation of heat. Floral chocolate truffle and black raspberry liqueur aromas exude from the glass. Dark and powerful a unique character for La Conseillante the wine is rich intens and filled with plum liqueur chocolate and black cherry.

Features substantial but very velvety structure running from start to finish delivering a muscular feel for now. The hard edges are fully absorbed by the core of plum sauce steeped blackberry and warm boysenberry reduction notes. The finish offers gorgeous tobacco and ganache accents lurking in the wings along with flickers of anise and incense that should guide this version to increased elegance with age. Best from 2016 through 2034. -JM Wine Spectator.

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 ri

Dark crimson. Racy lifted nose verging on tea and treacle but on the palate there seems no excess of acidity. Solid 21st-century thick right-bank Merlot. Solid and complete with real density. Actually on the finish it does seem to be built for the long term. Just a little astringent on the very end but overall pretty satiny. 17 out of 20 Jancis Robinson.

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. 93+ Stephen Ta
