This really does have a wonderful texture that is reminiscent of great pinot noir while remaining obviously cabernet franc and merlot. It shows a seductive nose of cream, berries, chocolate and flowers. It's full-bodied, very intense and seamless in length. Pure class. Drink now and enjoy but will improve for years ahead.

The Château La Conseillante 2005 has a flamboyant bouquet that just soars from the glass with scents of crème de cassis, blueberry, violets and a hint of black olive. This is far more exuberant than I remember it. The palate is full-bodied with ripe and underpinned by sumptuous tannins. It has extremely well-judged acidity, enormous depth and volume and a complex finish with lightly spice dark cherries, blackcurrant pastilles and minerals. There is a sense of completeness and harmony to this La Conseillante, allied with an audaciousness that is truly compelling.

Displaying spectacular aromatics of mulberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit, a dense ruby/purple color, and sweet floral notes, in the mouth the 2005 La Conseillante is not as broad and powerful as Petrus, Trotanoy, Hosanna or Lafleur, but it is gorgeously silky, elegant and stylish. This medium-bodied, savory wine is a graceful, provocative and compelling Pomerol to drink now and over the next 25 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, November 2015
Tasted after the Clos L'Eglise, the 2005 La Conseillante simply has more of everything. More richness, body and texture, but at the same time, there is a striking element of underlying minerality that confers freshness... Tasted after the Clos L'Eglise, the 2005 La Conseillante simply has more of everything. More richness, body and texture, but at the same time, there is a striking element of underlying minerality that confers freshness. The Conseillante is one of the riper wines of the night, yet all the elements are very much in the right place. A host of dark, jammy flavors meld into the effortless, flamboyant finish, where a kick of sweetness from the French oak adds the closing nuances. What a gorgeous wine this is.
