Tasting Note:

Marielle Cazaux explained that they lost 15% of the crop, but mainly fruit that goes into Duo, Conseillante's second wine. Produced from 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc and cropped at 34 hl/ha, this feels less worked than some recent vintages, there is plenty of glossy sweet cherry and crushed cranberry; lots of energy and verve, but it seems a little disjointed, and although you can sense the greatness of the terroir, you feel that it could be exploited better. It finishes with velvety, ripe tannins.
