Product Description

“Blackberries, violets and licorice, with hints of lavender. Full body, with phenomenal texture of ultra-fine tannins and subtle and intriguing fruit character. Goes on for minutes.” James Suckling 97 Points

“Deep primary colour with a glorious unfurling nose of chocolate and cherry. However it is the palate where this stunning wine scores most highly, with its gourmand texture and generous panoply of flavours ranging from black cherry and cassis to cocoa, pan juice, violet and liquorice root. Though 2009 is famed for its heat, weight and glycerol, this example has plenty of bounce and freshness to balance its sexy, sumptuous personality. Its voluptuous tannins are polished and ripe, while the finish is fabulous. This is magnificent now, but should be kept a while yet. Moreover, it will undoubtedly prove to be one of the vintage’s long distance runners.” Decanter 97 Points

“This delivers stunning toasted spice, mocha and black tea aromas, while the core of plum, blackberry and fig flavors is still rather reticent. The long finish is liberally laced with a racy graphite note, while the perfumy accent pervades. This will be a suave head-turner when it rounds into form.” Wine Spectator 96 Points

“The competition between the 2009, 2005 and 2000 La Conseillante will be interesting to follow over the next twenty years. There was more of a selection process at this estate in 2009 than there was in 2000, resulting in a beautiful Pomerol offering notes of mulberries, sweet cherries, spring flowers, raspberries and truffles. The color is a healthy deep plum/ruby/purple and the wine is medium to full-bodied with silky tannins, a broad, layered mouthfeel and wonderful freshness as well as length. This gorgeous, complex, Burgundian-styled Pomerol will be drinkable in 4-6 years and should keep for 30-40. (The 1970 is still alive and that was not nearly as well made as the 2009.)” – Robert Parker 96 Points

“Bright ruby-red. Knockout perfume of red berries, dark cherry, minerals, flowers, licorice, tobacco and tarragon, complemented by sexy sweet oak. Suave, glossy and silky, but given energy and lift by its cabernet franc component. Captivating vanilla, coconut and spice notes add complexity and lift to the vibrant fruit flavors. No excessive sweetness here. Still a baby but already boasts lovely early balance. Wonderfully smooth Pomerol with terrific finishing lift.” Vinous 94 Points

“Densely rich, very sweet wine. It has some smoky tannins that give structure, along with a dark core of dry raisin and wood flavors. It has concentration and an opaque texture.” Wine Enthusiast 93 Points
