Château La Conseillante Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

$385

The 1989 is the wine to buy. Tasted ten different times, it is this property's greatest effort since their 1949. An awesome bouquet of plums, exotic spices, and vanillin is followed by a wine that has brilliant definition, remarkable power, but also grace and elegance. Fabulously long, pure, sweet, and expansive, with an explosive finish, this wine should be at its best between 1996 and 2015. It was aged in 100% new oak because of its richness. How much fun millionaires will have debating the virtues of the 1989 versus the 1990 La Conseillante! I should also note that several of Bordeaux's most trusted tasters consider this the wine of the vintage... Robert Parker

Delicious. Dark plummy fruit. Hints of tobacco and leather. Very complex on the midpalate with herbal notes. Long and serious and sexy.

The 1989 La Conseillante is one of the top performers in Pomerol and arguably now one of the best values. This bottle confirms that exuberance and joie-de-vivre on the nose, displaying the telltale crushed violets in bloom, with precious but controlled red and black fruit underneath. The palate is sumptuous from the start, presenting cashmere tannin and perhaps a little more glycerine in this bottle. The bravura finish leaves you grinning from ear to ear. Stunning, and it will remain on its plateau for many years. Tasted at the 1989 Bordeaux dinner at Hatched in London. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2019)

Lt ruby in the glass. Looks young. Nose includes mocha, cassis, stone, black fruit, plums. Great fruit and structure but also one dimensional. Monolithic. Will this get better with more age? Probably.

Just a great bottle. More elegant than the 90 but not as rich. Beautiful dark, fruit with a solid acid backbone. Yummy!!
