Robert Parker

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. 92 points

Jean-Marc Quarin

Beautiful deep purplish crimson with garnet hues. Clean, subtle, floral and refine nose of fruit. Round and plump on entry then melting with grace and showing substantial presence from the mid-palate. Subtly elegant finish backed with fine-grained tannins. Utterly delicious and very French style. Highly recommended. A blend of 92% merlot and 18% cabernet franc. Alcohol content. 13.4- pH. 3.62. TA. 3.53 - IPT.80 93 points

The La Conseillante is a blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc. It has a very well defined bouquet with attractive dark berry and mulberry aromas, the terroir really coming through with subtle notes of black truffle. The palate is medium-bodied and I think Jean-Michel has really achieved very the filigree tannins this year, rendering this the most feminine La Conseillante I have tasted. It is silky smooth and yet there is certainly a tensile structure that should see it age nicely over 15-20 years. It is very composed, almost understated towards the finish, but this shows great persistency in the mouth without being overpowering. A `controlled` La Conseillante with just a elegant, beautiful finish. 94-96 points
