A wonderfully balanced Pomerol red wine

Château La Conseillante is a red wine produced in the Pomerol appellation. The vineyard of 11 hectares benefits from a vineyard of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The vines, aged 34 years on average, are planted on soils made of gray clays and sandy gravel on red clays. The ageing of the wine is carried out for 18 months in French oak barrels (with a proportion of 50 to 80% of new barrels).

At tasting, château La Conseillante 2009 reveals an expressive nose that combines the scents of black fruits, violets, licorice and fresh almonds. The wine is silky and offers perfectly integrated tannins in the mouth. It shows power, without dryness or astringency. A balanced wine with an extremely long finish. To be consumed before 2040.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 La Conseillante strides confidently out of the glass with very classy Black Forest cake, blueberry compote and kirsch scents plus suggestions of violets, liquid licorice, cardamom and bay leaves with a touch of eucalyptus. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly fruited with a firm, grainy frame and oodles of freshness, finishing long and minerally.
