Château la Conseillante Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Beautiful nose with cocoa powder, exotic flowers, candied violets and loads of dark berries. Great aromatic complexity. Amazing texture on palate with a superb precision and silky tannins. So beautifully composed showing already great harmony. Difficult to wait!...98" JamesSuckling.com 02/13 "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. ..96" WA 02/13

Shows impressive power and purity, with waves of blueberry, fig and spice notes backed by black tea and graphite. Velvety and very long, this has some power in reserve, but its really silky. A beauty. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Conseillante, La 6000ml

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. The wine combines freshness silky textures and a sense of refined elegance with the volume turned up. Jean- Michel Laporte feels 2010 is in the same style as 2005. Jeff Leve.
