It actually reflects my original assessment of this wine back at primeur. Here there is superb ripeness on the ebullient nose with ravishing scents of blackberry cedar cigar box and a touch of smoke. Good definition the plum and blackberry fruit emerging with time (rather reluctantly I might add.) The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins not as complex as more recent vintage but very well balanced with the Cabernet Franc lending an attractive savoury/meaty edge towards the finish. Considering the growing season this is a magnificent La Conseillante. Tasted December 2010.

It has a less expressive bouquet than the previous vintage, yet it remains fresh and vital with red fruit, iron piping, truffle and wilted rose petal aromas that discretely unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and very harmonious. The acidity is just right, allowing the lightly spiced, truffle-tinged fruit to express themselves. It does not possess the depth and length of the 1998 and yet there is an effortless quality to this La Conseillante that means it gives so much pleasure. Very fine. Tasted at La Conseillante vertical at the property. -- Neal Martin

(17/20) Very dark ruby with evolved rim. Dark ruby. Well melded. Good balance. Really quite superior. Strong toffee nose. Firm, tight tannins. Admirably persistent.
