Château La Conseillante Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

$485

This deep ruby/garnet-hued 1990 reveals considerable amber at the edge as well as a knock-out bouquet of cedar, kirsch, licorice, roasted herbs, and spice box. An exuberant, atypically flamboyant effort, it possesses supple texture, medium to full body, sweet fruit, plenty of glycerin, and attractive melted tannin. This wine has been delicious since birth, but additional nuances continue to develop in the bottle. Drink it over the next decade. Robert Parker

Wonderful evening at the City Club courtesy of Jeff’s hosting at the Friday group. Cellar guessing Jeff is a dangerous game as he’s the type who plans to throw curveballs! All wines served blind. Spice and white pepper on the nose. So much so that I guessed it was a Cab Franc Blend. Wasn’t peppery enough to be Loire valley, but I guessed it was a Cab Franc/merlot based right bank blend based on the leather and dusty cherry notes. Well, I was fairly close! Great wine.

Byob. This is stunning wine. In a perfect place right now and evolves beautifully over a couple hour meal.

I love this wine. So elegant, beautiful fruit, lithe, dances on your tongue. This is Fred Astaire, not Gene Kelly.

Very lovely and elegant Pomerol. Mature, rich fruit though a while to go.
