Château La Conseillante Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$315

A tremendous effort, and certainly the best La Conseillante since the marvelous duo of 1989 and 1990, this deep ruby/plum/purple-colored wine offers up notes of blackberries and kirsch liqueur intermixed with licorice, incense, spice box, and copious amounts of toasty oak. It is a relatively powerful effort for La Conseillante, with more tannin and structure than most vintages possess. As the wine sits in the glass, black raspberries, blueberries, smoke along with floral notes emerge. There is tremendous purity, medium to full body, great precision and concentration...Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025. Robert Parker

Velvet, not silk! Terrific showing out of 3L. Darker fruit than expected, but typical of the vintage. A perfect expression of Pomerol.

Might have been an off bottle. Disappointing. Not much complexity and mostly felt like a warm vintage.

Dark red fruit, hint of leather, deep earth. Great drinking now and will soften even more in years to come.

Perfectly peaked. The perfect balance of merlot and Cabernet. A Right Bank Beauty
