Interesting much more purple and brighter colour than nearly all the other Pomerols this year, though not massively deep (ie just not opaquely black at the centre). Nose restrained but high-toned red fruit. Warm and ripe on the nose, it is texturally cool and classy with glossy fruit smooth on the palate. Slight dry oakiness of aroma. Quite full. Will be lovely - fresh all the way though. Rating: 93 L&S (Apr 2005)

Very dark and opulent crimson. Looks very healthy and intense. Very fragrant. Meaty and savoury with great Pomerol plushness underneath. Lovely velvety richness and well-resolved tannins. Just gorgeous now (already !) Fine tannins well hidden with a little alcohol on the end. Good value. Drinking range: 2009 - 2022 Rating: 18.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Dec 2010)
Tasted at the La Conseillante vertical at Chez Bruce. A stupendous performance by the '04 and one of the overlooked gems under Jean-Michel Laporte's tenure, this representing his debut. It has a soft, slightly muffled bouquet with macerated black cherries, soy, raspberry coulis and a touch of bell pepper, improving all the time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight bitter edge on the entry, fine acidity but it is not quite in synch with the rest of the wine. Obdurate tannins (mirroring my sentiments from last years), rendering this a rather sultry La Conseillante but with a lascivious bittersweet finish and razor-like precision. Lovely. Tasted December 2010. Rating: 93-93 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Dec 2010)
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.
