Château la Conseillante Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2006
La Conseillante's 2006 boasts all the finesse of a top Grand Cru Burgundy, with<br/>a heady perfume and rich, spicy, dark fruit aromas. It is incredibly fresh and<br/>harmonious, with bags of supple tannins supporting the smooth, creamy palate of<br/>intensely concentrated blackberries and crushed raspberries. The finish is long<br/>and incredibly pure. With so much tannin and structure the 2006 isn't as<br/>appealing as the 2005, although Jean-Michel says he wouldn't be surprised if it<br/>is the better wine 10 years down the line. One of the stars of the vintage.<br/>Drink: 2014-2030.<br/>

External Reviews for Château la Conseillante Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol
Five generations of the Nicolas family have contributed to La Conseillante's stellar reputation since 1871.The estate is located on the highest part of the Pomerol plateau. The soil in the northern part, next to Pétrus, consists largely of clay and that in the southern part, bordering on Cheval Blanc, is primarily clay-gravel. The grape varieties are 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Everything possible is done in the vineyard to produce low yields of ripe, healthy grapes. Picking is done exclusively by hand at peak ripeness. Fermented in a modern vat room, but in keeping with traditional winemaking methods, Château La Conseillante is aged in 100% new oak barrels in great vintages, 80% in other years. La Coneillante's terroir exemplifies the full, round, creamy, velvety, and very smooth qualities of Merlot, while Cabernet Franc contributes red fruit and truffle aromas. This great estate makes wine that achieves a perfect harmony between elegance and power.
Intense aromas of truffle and berries lead to a full body, with ultrarefined tannins and a very long finish. Balanced and wonderfully crafted. Gorgeous. Extremely well done.
Dense black and ruby core with a vibrant rim. Creamy vanilla swims around ripe black cherry, blackberry and cassis aromas accented by lighter floral notes and a touch of flinty wet clay. Creamy and lush on the palate entry building to a bold yet ripe... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Conseillante, La 1500ml
