La Conseillante 1996

Chateau La Conseillante

21 years

La Conseillante, a quintessentially elegant, plump, fruit-driven wine (it can even have a Burgundian character in vintages such as 1989 and 1990), has turned out an open-knit, seductive wine in the generally tough-textured, tannic year of 1996. The color is a deep ruby. The wine possesses medium body, and a sweet, open-knit nose of black raspberries intermixed with pain grille, licorice, and smoke. Soft, round, and charming, this terroir's raspberry fruit is well-displayed. This 1996 can be drunk, but should keep nicely for 12-15 years. Anticipated maturity: now-2014.

Chateau La Conseillante

Chateau La Conseillante is a producer of high quality fine wine, based in the Pomerol appellation in Bordeaux, France. Previously, it used to be referred to as Chateau Conseillante, or just La Conseillante. Even though all wines from this appellation remain unclassified, this right bank winery is renowned for producing exceptional wines.

Chateau La Conseillante is an estate stretching 12 hectares on the eastern region of the Pomerol Appellation. It is sandwiched by several other prominent chateaux like Cheval Blanc, L’evangile and Vieux Chateau Certan, to name a few. Currently, the winery remains the property of the Nicolas family.

Common to the fine wines produced in this region, the grape composition is heavy on the Merlot - 80%, with 20% Cabernet Franc. On average, Chateau La Conseillante produces around 5,000 cases of wine each year; 4,000 of its primary wine, and 1,000 of its second wine labeled Duo de Conseillante.
