Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Pomerol & Lalande de Pomerol

ABV 13.3%

This wine has developed gorgeously during its elevage in barrel. The dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by explosive aromas of black raspberries, cherries, licorice, dried herbs, and sweet, toasty oak, layers of fruit on the mid-palate, a supple, seamless texture, and glorious length. While not massive (La Conseillante never is), its succulence, flamboyant aromatics, and harmonious finish grab the taster's attention. Drink it over the next two decades. This wine has put on considerable weight since it was tasted last year. Rating: 91-93 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Jan 2015)

Château La Conseillante

Château la Conseillante’s origins lay in an estate called Domaine de Mautretat that was broken up in the early years of the 18th Century with reverend gentleman called M. Léglise purchasing the part that became Château l’Evangile whilst Catherine Conseillan took the other. In 1871 Château la Conseillante was bought by the Nicolas family who own it to this day. With only the addition of a small plot of vines in 2014, the estate has remained the same ever since. The 12ha of vineyard are planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The vineyards border Petrus to the north, and one can gaze across l’Evangile and see the vines of Château Cheval Blanc. Indeed, a small part of la Conseillante’s vineyard strays across into St Emilion, but is included in the main Pomerol cuvée. Château la Conseillante is a well-executed balancing act marrying tradition with modernity, something exemplified by the new cellar that opened in 2012.
