Wine Spectator, April 2007
Attractive berry and mineral character. Full-bodied with a pretty complement of dark chocolate and berry character. Solid core of fruit and ripe tannins yet balanced. Very ripe fruit here. Serious for the vintage. -J.S.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then at the château. The 2006 Château La Conseillante had perhaps the most show-stopping bouquet out of all seventy-odd 2006s that I tasted at ten years. It explodes from the glass with raspberry coulis, kirsch, honey and marmalade, so much so that I am not sure if I would nail it as a Bordeaux, let alone a Pomerol! It is precocious and very attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe red cherry and strawberry fruit, plenty of black truffle, fine tannin and well-judged acidity. This is an opulent, decadent La Conseillante that is atypical of the vintage and yet you totally fall for its charms. What it might lack in subtlety, it makes up for in sheer charm. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

The 2006 vintage at La Conseillante is extremely successful and this is a very fine follow-up to the great wine produced here in 2005.

The 2006 vintage at La Conseillante is extremely successful and this is a very fine follow-up to the great wine produced here in 2005. The bouquet of the 2006 is pure, elegant and complex, delivering a fine blend of black raspberries, cassis, cigar smoke, a fine base of gravelly soil tones, a touch of tobacco leaf and a discreet framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and impressively transparent, with a fine core of fruit, excellent focus and balance and a very long, ripely tannic and classic finish. Fine juice in the making. (Drink between 2020-2060)

Dense black and ruby core with a vibrant rim. Creamy vanilla swims around ripe black cherry blackberry and cassis aromas accented by lighter floral notes and a touch of flinty wet clay.

Creamy vanilla swims around ripe black cherry blackberry and cassis aromas accented by lighter floral notes and a touch of flinty wet clay. Creamy and lush on the palate entry building to a bold yet ripe tannic finish. Dark sweet fruit flavors of blackberry plum and blueberry lead to a long spicy cinnamon finish. Great structure and balance.
