Peter Maude Fine Wines
2018, Château La Conseillante, POMEROL
Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.
This is beautiful and powers through the palate showing depth and concentration to the brambled fruit. It has an excellent mid palate, the truffle of Pomerol comes through at this young stage in a way that was not evident in the 2015 even, but here has a lovely seductive kick. Spicy vanilla bean and black pepper alongside touches of cinnamon, this is very good quality. A yield of 32hl/ha. 70% new oak, 3% in amphora for the first time. 96/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.
Drinking Window: 2025 - 2045.
