2018 Château La Conseillante Pomerol
The 2018 La Conseillante is a blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc, with a pH of 3.65 and 14% alcohol. The yields are (only) 32 hectoliters per hectare; The Merlot grapes were harvested from September 19 to October 1, and Cabernet Franc was harvested on October 4. In the glass, the La Conseillante is a very deep purple-black in color with a well-defined bouquet on the nose with red berries, blueberries, minerals, plums and some seaweed and in the distance some frankincense. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with elegant black fruit and earthy layers, framed by soft, velvety tannins and a perfect freshness and a long and mineral finish. Everything here is perfection and focused on super quality. No concessions! The result is astonishing over a series of many years, but the 2018 is very beautiful.
98/100 Parker & 97/100 Suckling. Parker writes in his review: " ...its an incredible expression of Pomerol that cannot fail to inspire a resounding "WOW" from whoever is fortunate to drink it.... "
