About this Item

Pomerol, 1970
1 (1 x 1) 750ml
Château La Conseillante is one of the finest producers in Pomerol and can trace its history back to 1735. It has been in the Nicolas family since 1874. The property’s 13 hectares of vineyards lie on a plateau in eastern Pomerol bordering Saint-Émilion with neighbouring vineyards belonging to L`Evangile, Petit-Village, Vieux Château-Certan and Cheval Blanc.La Conseillante is a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel before being aged in small oak casks (90% new) for 18-20 months. Château La Conseillante’s motto used to be ‘faire peu, mais faire bon’ – ‘do little, but do it well’, which Decanter notes, ‘is something that all the great estates of Pomerol seem to have mastered.’

Critics Ratings

'Light in color, with scents of flowers, black cherry, spice, truffle, tobacco, forest floor and chocolate, this medium/full bodied is pure silk in texture. The wine finishes with soft, elegant spicy plums and cherries.' - Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, 93/100 (Oct 2010)
