Deep ruby-garnet; ripe cassis and tar nose; very rich, spicy and generous, with great vigor and personality; lovely, intense fruit flavors; a splendid Pomerol.
This was a stunning performance for this wine, which I had thought was ever so slightly beginning to decline. In this tasting, the 1970 La Conseillante exhibited the sweet, truffle, caramel, mocha, jammy black-cherry, and toasty nose of this renowned estate, as well as sweet, round, concentrated flavors, and a lush, velvety texture, with a heady, alcoholic, rich finish. This was my last bottle out of what was a glorious case of wine. While I may have drunk the other eleven too soon, every bottle was drained quickly after the cork was pulled. (RP)
