Château La Conseillante 2014

 Incl. VAT & DPA case of 6 Bottles (75cl)

2014 Pomerol from Bordeaux

The 2014 Conseillante displays an inky purple-tinted dense red colour. The nose is subtle on very fresh Burlat cherry, smashed blackberry and pine forest aromas, conferring this Pomerol of Chateau La Conseillante an unexpected southern character. The attack is smooth, nervous and gradually gives way to blended, juicy and creamy tannins with elegant grain on the mid-palate. In retro-olfaction, black fruit aromas echo the nose's aromatic palette. This balanced wine from Pomerol is brilliant.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 La Conseillante has a well-defined bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, minerals, touches of seaweed and light incense aromas that develop fine intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. This Pomerol is very well poised with perfectly judged acidity. Whilst not a match for Titans like the 1989 or 2010, this La Conseillante possesses nuance and sophistication, a precision that does justice to the name. It should be earlier-drinking that other vintages that I have tasted, though given the terroir and track record, it would not surprise me if it gives 25 years of drinking pleasure. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
