Château La Conseillante, Pomerol, 2019

Tasting Note:

This is now Marielle’s fifth vintage at La Conseillante, and she’s forging a distinctive and successful style. The 2019 is produced from 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc, which will be aged in 70% new French oak, 27% second fill barrels and 3% in amphora. Initially this is quite reticent, but with some aeration notes of roses, crème de mûre, black forest gateau, vanilla and gorgeous black cherry emerge. There’s wonderful texture here, creamy, silky dark cherry liqueur fruit fills the mouth – it’s so velvety and voluptuous, coating and caressing the palate. The tannins are laced in swathes of violet scented açai and cassis, notes of spice and a hint of Valrhona chocolate. It feels luxury from the first nose to the long sumptuous finish
