Winemaker Notes

2010 concludes a superb trilogy of vintages that started with 2008 and is reminiscent of 1988-1989-1990. It is a vintage to delight the purists, having power and wonderful balance in the characteristic Bordeaux style. It is denser than the 2009 and has distinctly more acidity, which will make it longer ageing. In this way, it is more like the 1989. Complex, ripe and extremely deep, it is certainly one of the best La Conseillantes ever made!

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
Beautiful nose with cocoa powder, exotic flowers, candied violets and loads of dark berries. Great aromatic complexity. Amazing texture on palate with a superb precision and silky tannins. So beautifully composed showing already great harmony. Difficult to wait! Better in 2018.

A little darker and deeper in colour than the 2009 at this stage, but both remain young, fresh and full of promise. The depth to the fruit is evident, black cherry, chocolate shavings and black truffles with great shots of acidity through the entire body of the wine. Just dripping with succulent fruit and seduction, this is the most Pomerol of the lineup, surprisingly, perhaps, taking that crown from the 2009. Still young even at 11 years old, will settle in and open further over the next few years. Violet aromatics curl out of the glass as it opens. 85% new oak. Drinking Window 2021 - 2044
