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.

Now that La Conseillante is making a second wine with more severe selection, think of the 2009 as a version of the 2000 on steroids. This is never going to be a blockbuster wine, because the terroir just seems to produce silky, elegant wines, but in ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Conseillante, La 750ml

Densely rich very sweet wine. It has some smoky tannins that give structure along with a dark core of dry raisin and wood flavors. It has concentration and an opaque texture. Wine Enthusiast.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Jean-Michel Laporte describes his 2009 as "a real Conseillante"<br/>- soft, silky, long and sopisticated. We completely agree; this is<br/>superb. The wine brims with elegant damson fruit, an intriguing note of<br/>eucalyptus and wave upon wave of multi-layered complexity. A higher than usual<br/>addition of Cabernet Franc in the blend (19%) has resulted in beautiful<br/>freshness, with ultra-fine tannins and a delicious, crunchy finish. This is<br/>clearly one of the top wines of the vintage.
