Food Pairings for Château le Conseiller Bordeaux Supérieur
Winery: "Chateau Le Conseiller is one of the best examples of how good low priced, value Bordeaux wine can be. Jean Philippe Jannoueix is making some of the best Bordeaux Superieur wines." "The 27 hectare Bordeaux wine vineyard of Le Conseiller is situated in clay and alluvial soils. The Right Bank vineyard is planted a cepage of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with vines that are close to 40 years of age. For a Bordeaux value wine, Janoueix does a lot of work to make sure this is the best wine possible from Le Conseiller. For the vinification of Chateau Le Conseiller, they use a mixture of concrete tanks and stainless steel vats. During fermentation at Le Conseiller, they pump over 3 times a day. The wine of Chateau Le Conseiller are aged in a combination of 100% new oak barrels from France and America. Interestingly, they are one of the few Bordeaux estates that import American oak barrels. At Chateau Le Conseiller, for the barrels, Jannoueix uses 50% traditional shaped oak barrels and the remaining barrels are the cigar shaped barrels that Janoueix likes. These expensive oak barrels are in use at his top Right Bank estates in St. Emilion, Chateau La Confession and in Pomerol at Chateau La Croix St. Georges." "All this effort and expense is clearly seen in the quality of the wine. If you’re seeking a Bordeaux Superieur Bordeaux value wine that drink well on release, this is a great choice. It is not for aging. Chateau Le Conseiller is best enjoyed within a few years of release." - The Wine Cellar Insider
