Chateau La Conseillante 2018 Pomerol - Large Format 300cl / 14.5%
This bottle was donated by Goedhuis & Co for The Cream Of The Crop Charity Auction in aid of The Drinks Trust to support drinks industry employees.
A double magnum of Chateau La Conseillante 2018 from Bordeaux's Pomerol appellation.
'The 2018 La Conseillante is composed of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc, with a 3.65 pH and 14% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs a lot of swirling and coaxing to lure out the youthfully shy, incredible perfume of black raspberries, boysenberries, ripe plums and cinnamon toast, leading to notions of lilacs, clove oil and forest floor, plus a waft of iron ore. The medium to full-bodied palate is a jaw-dropping exercise in finesse, slowly unfurling in the mouth to reveal layer upon layer of bright, crunchy red and black fruits, supported by a rock-solid frame of firm, fine-grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and with an impressive mineral and exotic spice firework display. It's an incredible expression of Pomerol that cannot fail to inspire a resounding "WOW" from whoever is fortunate to drink it. Tempting to broach now (albeit with a lot of air), try to keep your hands off it for a good 5 years and then drink it over the next 30 years or more. 2026 to 2056. 98/100' Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, 2021
