La Conseillante made an excellent wine in 2001 another great one in 2005 and the estate hit home runs in both 2008 and above all in 2009. In fact the latter vintage may well end up being the modern-day reference point for La Conseillante. Nevertheless there's a lot to be said for this 2000. An elegant gentle style that is never a blockbuster the 2000 La Conseillante has a deep ruby/plum/purple color and an unbelievably expressive nose of sweet kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries incense toast and licorice. Full-bodied yet ethereal in the sense that it seems to combine power along with eloquence and delicacy this is a beautifully pure wine that has just hit its plateau of full maturity although ideally I think it would benefit strongly from another 4-5 years of bottle age and drink well for two to three decades.

Pretty, with a perfumy hint to the range of bergamot, blood orange, kirsch and damson plum fruit flavors, which are backed by a graceful, floral-edged finish. Very silky and suave, this expands steadily and dramatically in the glass but still forgoes power for a lacy seduction. This really stands apart from the powerfully ripe general profile of the AOC in '00 but seems likely to last just as long in the hunt as the other top dogs.—2000 Bordeaux blind retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2028. 5,000 cases made. –JM

Tasted at the La Conseillante vertical at Chez Bruce. The millennial La Conseillante sports an almost Burgundian bouquet with bilberry, iodine, black olive and blackberry dominating that beautifully defined aromatics that seem a little more tightly wound than I expected. The palate is medium-bodied with robust tannins rendering this a more masculine, uncompromising La Conseillante, whilst the sinewy finish needs a little more flesh that will develop as the wine softens and melts with age. What you might describe as a "rigid" Pomerol at the moment although it does soften with further aeration towards a silky, Richebourg-like finish.

Captivating perfumed nose combines blackberry licorice and violet; exotic and sweet. Thick and intensely flavored with the strong violet and exotic spice character carrying through on the palate. Offers a very firm structure no doubt largely due to the wine substantial cabernet franc component. Ripe tannins spread out to cover the entire palate. Offers outstanding potential. My sample of the '99 Conseillante was distinctly green.

Full-bodied, yet refined and silky. This is delicious and pretty, and just starting to open up with flavors of tobacco, cedar, and cigar box. No need to wait.
