2011 chateau la conseillante, pomerol
Why We're Buying
It's poetic that Château La Conseillante doesn't have a Bordeaux classification. The grand vin isn't easy to define. It's powerful yet seamless, complex yet elegant. With only 4,000 cases made per year, every investor should have this Bordeaux red blend in their collection.
The 2011 La Conseillante is impressive, and I suspect one of the gems in the vintage. Full-bodied, concentrated, and layered, with lots of spice, bouquet garni, graphite and assorted darker fruits, it has the classic elegance and polish of the estate and while still young, is drinking beautifully today. Enjoy bottles over the coming two decades.
