La Conseillante 2016

La Conseillante

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 99.0

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.

The 2016 La Conseillante is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc aged in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak for 17 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slips provocatively out of the glass with a lifted perfume of roses, candied violets and lavender over a core of warm red and black plums, chocolate box, unsmoked cigars and baked cherries with wafts of wild thyme and tilled soil. Medium-bodied, the palate exudes polish and sophistication with bags of fragrance, freshness and energy, sporting exquisitely fine-grained tannins and finishing very long and minerally. Around 3,808 cases produced.

I love the depth and character to the fruits on this wine. Still extremely young, in a closed phase with plenty of tannic grip, but there are layers upon layers of blueberry, cassis, raspberry, mint, saffron, slate and liquorice. Clear acidity also, ensuring this succulent, juicy character to the fruits. A brilliant example of an excellent vintage in Pomerol. 70% new oak. A yield of 39.5hl/ha.
