  • Goedhuis, May 2005, Score: -

    This is a beautifully proportioned Conseillante, discreetly charming, elegant and pure. It was refreshing to taste a Pomerol of such traditional character rather than the overextracted wines that we have had to suffer in recent years. Creamy and plump it will give enormous pleasure.Drink 2012-2022

  • Robert Parker, June 2007, Score: 89

    The 2004 La Conseillante has put on weight since I tasted it from barrel. Made in an atypically structured, tight style, the deep ruby/blue-tinged 2004 offers up sweet mulberry, cassis, licorice, and roasted herb aromas as well as flavors. This medium-bodied, moderately tannic effort will benefit from 1-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 12-15 years. It is somewhat reminiscent of the 1999. This is a very good wine, but the 2005 and 2006 blow it away – qualitatively speaking! Drink 2008-2022

  • Robert Parker, June 2006, Score: 87-88

    This light, fresh wine displays hints of olives, black cherries, and raspberries, a touch of minerality, and a medium-bodied, clean finish. While it lacks substance, depth, and persistence on the palate, it is an attractive, elegant, finesse-styled Pomerol to drink during its first 10-12 years of life. Drink 2006-2018

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2005, Score: 16.5

    Slightly brown tinge to the crimson. Sweet vanilla oak aromas plus a certain briskness. True to the vintage with some freshness and some fruity core before the tannins impinge. Tannin quality not intrusive. Good serviceable representative of the right bank without being a standout. Drink 2013-2020

Producer

Château la Conseillante

Many experts consider this an atypical wine, often more reminiscent of grand cru red Burgundy than a heavy weight Pomerol. Its exceptional terroir places it on the Pomerol/St. Emilion border surrounded by Cheval Blanc, Vieux Château Certan, L'Evangile and Pétrus.

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
