Chateau La Conseillante is one of the oldest properties in Pomerol, with a history dating back to the middle of the 18th century. Their wine style is elegant with a velvety textured fruit.
Chateau La Conseillante 2015
Pomerol makes rich and age-worthy wines and the appellation is well known for the quality of its wines, from Petrus to Chateau Le Pin.
The 2015 vintage is a blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in 70% new and 30% one-year-old French oak. The wine has intense aromas of black plum and violets, and a complex palate with chocolate, tobacco and vanilla notes. The tannins are high, but very fine, and the wine has a freshness that will allow it to age for the next 20 years. We highly recommend decanting it for at least 2 hours. Pair with roasted beef or vegetables.
