La Conseillante’s star is undoubtedly in the ascendant. We had a fabulous tasting with them earlier in the year, and were blown away by the delectable 2015 Duo de Conseillante. We are delighted to have secured a small parcel of this wine, which is now in the UK and ready for delivery.
From its inaugural vintage in 2007, Duo de Conseillante is typically fashioned from fruit borne of the estate’s younger vines. However, in all other aspects the wine is lavished with the same care and attention as its bigger sibling, although it retails for a fraction of the cost. From the hand harvesting of the grapes, fermentation in the state of the art chai and ageing in new French oak, Duo is a wine that belies its second label status.
2015 was a great vintage in Pomerol, a wet spring ensured the vineyards were well equipped to deal with the hot, dry conditions in June and July and the high quality and abundant harvest was brought in under optimal conditions. This wine is unmistakeably cut from the same cloth as the grand vin, expressing all the complexity and elegance of this great Pomerol terroir with its hints of liquorice, violets and red berries.
Ready to drink now but easily capable of developing for another decade or so, the 2015 Duo is a captivating vintage that will give enormous drinking pleasure and we are delighted to offer such an assured wine from one of our favourite Pomerol estates.
