 This 20 acre estate is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc with extremely old vines averaging 40+ years. Superbly situated next to L'Evangile and Vieux Chateau Certan, the wines here are meticulously made and among the best of Pomerol. Robert Parker says, 'La Conseillante is close in style to a grand cru Burgundy. The wine, which benefits from a sumptuous terroir, is elegant, lush and delicious.'

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 La Conseillante is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc aged in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak for 17 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slips provocatively out of the glass with a lifted perfume of roses, candied violets and lavender over a core of warm red and black plums, chocolate box, unsmoked cigars and baked cherries with wafts of wild thyme and tilled soil. Medium-bodied, the palate exudes polish and sophistication with bags of fragrance, freshness and energy, sporting exquisitely fine-grained tannins and finishing very long and minerally. Around 3,808 cases produced.

Wine Enthusiast95-97. Barrel Sample. This rich, structured wine has ripe tannins and sumptuous black fruit. There is a touch of bitterness from extraction, resulting in dark chocolate flavors. It's powerful, at 14% alcohol by volume, without being excessive.

Wine SpectatorDesignation Barrel Tasting. Bright raspberry and blackberry confiture flavors fill out nicely as they move along, followed by a well-buried graphite edge and a flash of cocoa at the very end. Has a vivid display of fruit and the buried spine to back it up. Score range: 93-96
