If you are not hooked right then and there, there is always what takes place when the wine glides from the bottle to the glass, on the way to your palate. This is unbridled sensuality. Pure silk and velvet, the texture is a pure, hedonistic thrill ride. Talking about this wine is one thing. But tasting it is even better. If you want to know why I am raving about this wine, find a bottle and see for yourself. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=Conseillante

Aromas of tar, black olive skin and blackberries follow through to a full body. Ultra-fine tannins and a long, linear finish with super intensity. Well-crafted in every sense. A fabulous Pomerol for the future. Try in 2022.

This was the first vintage with Marielle Cazeaux as technical director. As with the 2005, this is a wine where you feel everything stepping up a level, and as with the 2009 the fruit profile is dense and seductive, with flatteringly succulent tannins. It's rich and ripe, with striking fresh mint and chargrilled oak on the tight finish that adds a layer of complexity to the fleshy raspberry fruit. This continues the more muscular feel to La Conseillante that we have seen over the past few vintages, but it absolutely delivers the classical balance that so many of us love this estate for. 3.65pH, 75% new oak. Bottled in late May 2017.

A polished and super-sophisticated Pomerol, La Conseillante is all class. Precise, lifted aromatics make a strong first impression, but it is the wine's overall feel and sense of harmony that truly dazzle. Over the last two years, the 2015 seems to have gained in freshness, precision and nuance. What a wine! The blend is 81% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc. Don't' miss it.

Medium to full-bodied with decadent fruit and a gorgeous plushness to the texture, the palate features impeccable poise and compelling depth, finishing on a lingering mineral note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Wine Spectator, April 2016
(WS93-96 points) Lush notes of dark fig, boysenberry and blackberry pâte de fruit glide over ample but velvety tannins, with suave black tea and ganache accents. This is long and should be gorgeous when finished. - JM

Reminding me of the 2009, the 2015 La Conseillante is more overt and sexy compared to the 2016, offering a huge nose of mulled black fruits, spring flowers, chocolate and gravely/clay-like earthiness. This is a full-bodied, complex, elegant and layered 2015 that has a singular character and the class to drink well for 20-25 years.

Ripe black fruits and velvet tannins give the wine elegance and charm. It is juicy and ripe, with a background of firm structure set against a crisp final texture. The wine will develop well; drink from 2025.
