Rich, opulent, jam-packed with fruit. Light spiciness to finish. Very mouth-coating tannin. Firm, yet has tenderness, with great clarity. 17+/20 points. Drink 2016 to 2028
Juicy and fruity, this wine shows attractive black currant flavors, rounded with the tannins already well integrated.
Deep ruby. Explosively aromatic nose combines blackcurrant, black cherry, candied violet and cocoa, complicated by minerals and dried herbs. Juicy, vinous and penetrating, with noteworthy energy to the sharply delineated flavors of cassis, sweet spices, pepper and fresh herbs. This very classy, perfumed winefinishes with a firm tannic spine and excellent length. An outstanding effort in 2011.
Frankly toasted, with a warm ganache coating over the core of steeped plum and raspberry fruit, which lends a slightly showy and muscular feel for now. Alluring spice, incense and black tea notes flitter through the finish, hinting at a suave, alluring element that should develop in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2025.
The quintessential elegant style of Pomerol, the 2011 La Conseillante offers copious aromas of raspberries, mulberries and spring flowers. Medium-bodied with pure fruit, seamlessly integrated tannin, acidity and wood, and a soft, velvety textured finish, this classic effort is ethereal in its elegance and precision. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. (RP)
This has evolved beautifully. The nose shows black truffles, berries and chocolate character. This is full-bodied, with very firm but polished tannins and a long, focused finish. Needs three to four years to soften, but a pretty, balanced wine for the vintage.
The 2011 La Conseillante is impressive, and I suspect one of the gems in the vintage. Full-bodied, concentrated, and layered, with lots of spice, bouquet garni, graphite and assorted darker fruits, it has the classic elegance and polish of the estate and while still young, is drinking beautifully today. Enjoy bottles over the coming two decades.
