La Conseillante 2008 (750ML)
95 Points, Robert M. Parker, Jr., Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The beautiful 2008 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color as well as jammy red and black fruit, crushed rock and floral notes. If this were a Burgundy, one might think of it as a grand cru Musigny. With excellent texture, medium to full body and stunning purity as well as nobility, this fascinating Pomerol should drink well for 15-20 years." 05/11
94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2008 La Conseillante has an attractive bouquet at ten years of age, unfolding discretely in the glass with engaging scents of Morello cherry, blackcurrant, orange pith, cedar and a touch of mint. The delineation here is very impressive. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin and a keen thread of acidity. It conveys energy and vivacity and then develops a quite irony note towards the second half with traces of white pepper and bay leaf infusing the red and black fruit. What I appreciate here is its focus and drive, a Pomerol intent on longevity. It is drinking perfectly well now, but it will have more to give. (Tasted at the château and at BI Wine & Spirit’s annual vertical tasting.)" 02/18
93 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "The sweetness of fruit and balance to this wine is really impressive. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a light milk chocolate, blueberry and spice character. Bright acidity gives it verve. Drink or hold." 06/16
93 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: "This vintage is sometimes forgotten but is tasting open and ready right now; a sculpted, elegant style of La Conseillante. There is a higher acidity than in some, a result of a complicated growing season particularly during harvest, but the fruit is very much in evidence, and the wine has savoury raspberry leaf notes along with crushed mint on the finish. A yield of 34hl/ha. 80% new oak." 01/21
95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com: "This reference point estate has turned out a classic, incredibly impressive Pomerol, and they compared their 2008 La Conseillante to their 1988. It has a complex, mature bouquet of sweet red and black currants, white truffles, incense, and spice. This carries to a medium to full-bodied Pomerol that has a great, mineral-laced finish that makes you salivate. This elegant yet showy effort is drinking fabulous well today yet will have no issues keeping for another 10-15 years." 02/19
