Blackberries violets and licorice with hints of lavender. Full body with phenomenal texture of ultra-fine tannins and subtle and intriguing fruit character. Goes on for minutes. Try in 2020.

The competition between the 2009 2005 and 2000 La Conseillante will be interesting to follow over the next twenty years. There was more of a selection process at this estate in 2009 than there was in 2000 resulting in a beautiful Pomerol offering notes of mulberries sweet cherries spring flowers raspberries and truffles. The color is a healthy deep plum/ruby/purple and the wine is medium to full-bodied with silky tannins a broad layered mouthfeel and wonderful freshness as well as length. This gorgeous complex Burgundian-styled Pomerol will be drinkable in 4-6 years and should keep for 30-40. (The 1970 is still alive and that was not nearly as well made as the 2009.)

This delivers stunning toasted spice mocha and black tea aromas while the core of plum blackberry and fig flavors is still rather reticent. The long finish is liberally laced with a racy graphite note while the perfumy accent pervades. This will be a suave head-turner when it rounds into form. Best from 2018 through 2030. -JM

The purity and density of fruit is center stage here with kirsch and candied strawberries and ripe cassis aromas at the forefront. The clay soils atop the Pomerol plateau added a dimension of depth and a hint of restraint to the ripe Merlot of this vintage. The soft supple tannins and sweet fruit encase an expansive taut youthful wine that is balanced in its mouthwatering fruit and maple flavors. Absolutely delicious now and the underlying subtle yet firm structure provides the foundation for nuanced evolution over the next 10-15 years.

Knockout perfume of red berries dark cherry minerals flowers licorice tobacco and tarragon complemented by sexy sweet oak. Suave glossy and silky but given energy and lift by its cabernet franc component. Captivating vanilla coconut and spice notes add complexity and lift to the vibrant fruit flavors. No excessive sweetness here. Still a baby but already boasts lovely early balance. Wonderfully smooth Pomerol with terrific finishing lift.

Densely rich very sweet wine. It has some smoky tannins that give structure along with a dark core of dry raisin and wood flavors. It has concentration and an opaque texture.
