La Conseillante 2021

La Conseillante

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 97.0

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.

William Kelley

A superb effort that transcends the challenges of the vintage, the 2021 La Conseillante offers up a beautifully perfumed nose of wild berries, raspberry coulis, violets, exotic spices and vine smoke. Medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, its a sensual, seamless wine thats deep and layered, structured around supple tannins and lively acids. Perfumed and penetrating, the 2021 isnt the most powerful wine this estate has produced, but it brilliantly exemplifies the rare structural elegance and almost Burgundian aromatic range that so often set this great estate apart from the rest of the Pomerol appellation. Its a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.

Flavoursome, sculpted, successful, this is rippling with violet and rosebud aromatics, followed by raspberry and black cherry fruits. It maintains momentum through the mid palate with a creamy texture and gourmet touches of liquorice root, cocoa bean and precisely-expressed slate minerality. Harvest began the latest ever, on September 28 through to October 12, 39hl/h yield, almost exactly average for the property (the average in Pomerol this year was closer to 29hl/h), from 9.77ha of vines in production, 3.6ph, 70% new oak with 3% amphora and 3.5% press wine. A successful showing for the 150th vintage of the estate from director Marielle Cazeaux. Michel Rolland consultant.
