Château La Conseillante

Château La Conseillante

Château La Conseillante has been sold as La Conseillante since at least 1756. It is widely acknowledged to have some of the best terroir in the appellation sitting as it does wedge between Vieux Châteaux Certan, L’Evangile, Cheval Blanc and Pétrus. La Conseillante was bought by the Nicolas family in 1871, and they are the still the owners today. In 2003 Jean-Michel Laporte became manager of the Pomerol wine with the famous purple label. The bottle is one of many people’s favourite in all of Bordeaux! The vineyard is roughly 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. Intriguingly, 30% of vines are actually in Saint-Émilion! The wine is luxurious and velvety. Not the most powerful or ripest Pomerol, but in many experts’ eyes the most harmonious.

Wine Advocate (94)

Having tasted the 1982 Château La Conseillante on numerous occasions, it is fair to say that it has become overshadowed by the 1989 and 1990. Yet it remains not only a prosaically delicious Pomerol, but it represents the beginning of a new era for the estate after treading water since the 1960s. This was tasted blind. It has a beautiful, sensual if slightly faded bouquet with mulberry fruit tinged with sage and even a suggestion of black olive that tugs it towards Pessac-Léognan. It lacks the horsepower of the 1989 and 1990, but it is delineated and winsome. The palate is medium-bodied and is brimming over with both finesse and intensity. The quality of the vintage still comes through here, surprisingly deep and voluminous, not as structured as subsequent vintages, but gently fanning out with a subtle wild mushroom note betraying its age on the aftertaste. The bottom line is that this is a lovely, natural La Conseillante perfect for drinking now. Tasted March 2014.

La Conseillante 2019 (6x75cl)

Vinous (97-99)

The 2019 La Conseillante was picked 17-20 September for the Merlot and 30 September and 7 October for the Cabernet Franc. Yields were low at just 34hl/ha. The Grand Vin is aged in 70% new French oak, 27% one-year old barrels and 3% in clay amphora. Limpid purple in colour, this has an exquisite bouquet with pixelated blackberry and raspberry scents, laced with pressed iris and a touch of graphite. It reminds me of a less powerful version of the 2010 when I tasted that from barrel. The palate is very smooth with ebullient red and black fruit on the entry, then it tapers in a little, towards a very cohesive, satin-textured middle. This is definitely one of the purest La Conseillante wines that I have encountered from barrel. It delivers a subtle spiciness towards the finish with hints of tobacco and clove on the persistent aftertaste. Winemaker Marielle Cazaux and her team have conjured a magnificent Pomerol here.

James Suckling (98-99)

The balance and energy to this is very impressive with blackberry, black-olive, tar and walnut character. It’s full, but very compact with superb tannin quality that is intense, yet so fine-grained, building layers on the palate. A subtle and structured young wine. It really goes on and on.
