Tasting Notes

Vinous 97

The 2009 La Conseillante has a very classy and sophisticated bouquet with beautifully defined black and red fruit mixed with black truffle and pressed rose petals. The oak is just completely subsumed here. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe and saturated tannin, a fine line of acidity, fresh and tensile with a sense of mineralite on the finish. This bottle shows even better than the one poured at the property 12 months earlier. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 2009 Bordeaux tasting. [Neal Martin, 14/03/2019]

Robert Parker 96

The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 La Conseillante strides confidently out of the glass with very classy Black Forest cake, blueberry compote and kirsch scents plus suggestions of violets, liquid licorice, cardamom and bay leaves with a touch of eucalyptus. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly fruited with a firm, grainy frame and oodles of freshness, finishing long and minerally. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 22/02/2019]

JancisRobinson.com 18/20

Tasted blind. Bright crimson. A burnt, savoury edge. Lively, not too sweet. Thicker than wine 6 in this flight [Hosanna 2009]. Well balanced and quite Cabernet. Really fresh and long " all on the finish. But a bit dry on the end. [13/02/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2038
