Fruit of a very great vintage for Bordeaux, Château La Conseillante 2015 is one of the most beautiful Pomerol of the appellation.
A sunny and generous vintage, 2015 was marked by a beautiful flowering of the vines followed by a very sunny summer and after-season which gave birth to beautiful grapes that reached perfect maturity, with an optimal sugar-acidity balance and great aromatic freshness.
A great wine of Pomerol, the blend of Château La Conseillante 2015 is dominated by the emblematic grape variety of the right bank of the Bordeaux region, the Merlot (81%), supplemented by Cabernet Franc(19%).
Presenting the elegance and refinement typical of the great wines of Pomerol, Château La Conseillante 2015 delivers a beautiful interpretation of its birthplace terroir by displaying the style that distinguishes this exceptional property. The fruit expresses itself with purity, evolving with class in a mouth chiseled by a silky and deliciously structured palate.
A very fine vintage for La Conseillante perfectly executed under the direction of the talented Marielle Cazeaux, technical director of the estate.
Composed of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 La Conseillante opens with reticent, earthy notes of dusty soil, garrigue, forest floor and iron ore with a core of warm plums, cassis, cigar boxes, star anise and dark chocolate plus a hint of violets. Medium to full-bodied with decadent fruit and a gorgeous plushness to the texture, the palate features impeccable poise and compelling depth, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
