Pomerol la Conseillante Pomerol 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The nose is exuberant, with pure violets and berries. Insane. This is so straight and racy, with super fine tannins and a long, long finish. There is a minimalist clarity to the wine. Superb…97-98." JS 4/11. "Remarkable decade for this estate. Quintessentially floral, this dense purple-colored effort reveals sweet flowery black raspberry and blueberry liqueur notes, more power, muscle and concentration than most vintages and exquisite elegance, purity and personality. Serious tannin lurks beneath the surface, but the overall impression is of a medium to full-bodied, strikingly deep, beautifully pure, well-balanced wine...95-98" WA 5/11

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

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
