Château La Conseillante 2009

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  13582

This tasted brilliant in London a few weeks ago at the Bordeaux 10 Years On tasting, but even better in New York. There's so much complexity on offer - the natural elegance pumped up with dark chocolate, graphite and liquorice layering up through the damson and blackberry fruits. A gorgeous, delicious wine with a blast of freshly crushed mint leaf on the finish. This was the third vintage since a second wine was launched in 2007, helping the winemaking team to concentrate and refine this main bottling. Jean-Michel Laporte was director at the time, with Gilles Paquet as consultant. Drinking window: 2020-2032. Score - 97. (Jane Anson,, Feb. 24, 2019)
