Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Textbook Pomerol. Well-crafted, with tobacco, berry and cedar aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87-90

Red-ruby. Expressive, liqueur-like aromas of kirsch, spicy oak and fresh herbs. Supple, sweet and plump in the mouth; not especially dense but has a firm structural underpinning. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and subtle, lingering black raspberry flavor. This should be the best Conseillante since the '95.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

An evolved dark plum/garnet color is followed by captivating, sexy, raspberry, soy, Asian spice, kirsch liqueur, and toasty vanillin aromas. While not a blockbuster, this opulently-textured, medium-bodied effort is a model of elegance, harmony, finesse, and complexity. This wine's low acidity as well as wonderfully ripe fruit invite immediate consumption; it should last for 12-15 years.

Drink Dates: 2006-2015
Moderate ruby red colored wine with lots of thick clear legs. A soaring nose of herbs, red fruits, vanilla, and toast. High well integrated acids and moderate tannins lead to a moderately fruity with herb shadings finish. Should be better considering the quality of the vintage.

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.
