Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Deep ruby-garnet; ripe cassis and tar nose; very rich, spicy and generous, with great vigor and personality; lovely, intense fruit flavors; a splendid Pomerol.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

This was a stunning performance for this wine, which I had thought was ever so slightly beginning to decline. In this tasting, the 1970 La Conseillante exhibited the sweet, truffle, caramel, mocha, jammy black-cherry, and toasty nose of this renowned estate, as well as sweet, round, concentrated flavors, and a lush, velvety texture, with a heady, alcoholic, rich finish. This was my last bottle out of what was a glorious case of wine. While I may have drunk the other eleven too soon, every bottle was drained quickly after the cork was pulled. Owners are advised to drink it up. Those who may be fortunate enough to have larger format bottles have another 10+ years to enjoy this stunningly proportioned La Conseillante.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
