La Conseillante 2008

La Conseillante

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 95.0

One of the most esteemed wines from Pomerol, Château La Conseillante has built a name for producing some of the regions most lavish and refined clarets. One of the oldest estates in the appellation, it is steeped in a rich history of winemaking that dates back to the mid-18th century. Uniquely positioned within Pomerol, the estate benefits from a mix of soils and sub soils with a terroir that consists of grey, blue and red clay, with iron gravel and sand deposits. Its 12 hectares of vineyard are planted with Merlot (c.80%) and Cabernet Franc (c.20%). In turn, their alchemic blend of fruit results in a soft-textured wine peppered with expressive notes of violets and truffles. Each vintage this wine is highly sought-after.



Neal Martin

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. This was a slightly disappointing performance from La Conseillante compared to previous encounters. It has a decadent bouquet with super-ripe red fruit: very plush with pronounced new oak, a little “smudged” when compared to its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins and it appears to have lower acidity. Nevertheless, there is certainly good grip with layers of rich dark cherry and plum fruit towards the sustained finish, though it is missing some persistency. Tasted January 2012.

Jancis Robinson

Tasted blind. Light colour. Scented, Cabernet leafiness. Not that concentrated but juicy and fluid. Acid quite marked.
