Lot 8

CHÂTEAU LA CONSEILLANTE 2005 (1)

Pomerol.
scuffed label

Displaying spectacular aromatics of mulberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit, a dense ruby/purple color, and sweet floral notes, in the mouth the 2005 La Conseillante is not as broad and powerful as Petrus, Trotanoy, Hosanna or Lafleur, but it is gorgeously silky, elegant and stylish. This medium-bodied, savory wine is a graceful, provocative and compelling Pomerol to drink now and over the next 25 years. June 2015 Drink: 2015-2040 WA 97

CHÂTEAU LA CONSEILLANTE 2006 (3)

Pomerol.
3 x scuffed labels

CHÂTEAU LA CONSEILLANTE 2009 (1)

Pomerol.

The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 La Conseillante strides confidently out of the glass with very classy Black Forest cake, blueberry compote and kirsch scents plus suggestions of violets, liquid licorice, cardamom and bay leaves with a touch of eucalyptus. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly fruited with a firm, grainy frame and oodles of freshness, finishing long and minerally. May 2019 Drink: 2020-2048 WA 96

CHÂTEAU LA CONSEILLANTE 2010 (2)

Pomerol.
2 x scuffed labels

A brilliant effort from this property, known for the sheer elegance and finesse of its wines, the 2010 La Conseillante offers back-to-back monumental efforts, particularly given the remarkable 2009. This estate has been on a hot streak of late. The 2010 is a slightly bigger, richer wine, but without losing its floral, elegant mulberry, black raspberry and sweet kirsch notes. Combine those with some licorice, subtle new oak and a hint of forest floor, and the result is a medium to full-bodied, rich, complex wine that has striking aromatics and perfect balance in the mouth. Forget it for 3-5 years and drink it over the following 30. February 2013 Drink: 2016-2046 WA 96
