Ch La Conseillante Pomerol 2017
In our opinion Pomerol is the star performing appellation of the Right Bank in 2017.
La Conseillante's 12 hectares are in the heart of the Pomerol plateau next to Evangile, Vieux Château Certan and Pétrus. In recent vintages they have produced stellar wines, earning a well-deserved place among the most celebrated and sought-after châteaux of this great appellation.
The classically styled 2017 La Conseillante (85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc) shows impressive freshness and elegance. The wine is perfectly weighted with incredible balance, sinuous tannins and graceful length, and will age beautifully over the next 20 years.
La Conseillante continues its hot streak with this stunning 2017 and garners some of the highest scores and critical acclaim of the vintage. Neal Martin scores 93-95 and comments, “It is less powerful than the 2016 at this stage but it is clearly a very well crafted, almost sensual Pomerol by winemaker Marielle Cazaux.” The Wine Advocate awards 95-97 points and comments, “This is an arrestingly beautiful expression of this vintage”, while Matthew Jukes gives it a massive 19+.
