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

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

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.

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.

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
