Chateau La Conseillante Pomerol 2000

Chateau La Conseillante Pomerol 750ML 2000      
Sku: 14282

The wine displays an opaque purple colour. The nose, which surprises with its concentration and purity, is distinguished by aromas of ripe fruit, liquorice and toast. Fairly tannic, the palate nevertheless is highly smooth with cherry and liquorice notes, and unrivalled length. An exceptional vintage. Keeping: 8 to 30 years.

96 Points Wine Advocate Robert Parker
"A tremendous effort, and certainly the best La Conseillante since the marvelous duo of 1989 and 1990, this deep ruby/plum/purple-colored wine offers up notes of blackberries and kirsch liqueur intermixed with licorice, incense, spice box, and copious amounts of toasty oak. It is a relatively powerful effort for La Conseillante, with more tannin and structure than most vintages possess. As the wine sits in the glass, black raspberries, blueberries, smoke along with floral notes emerge. There is tremendous purity, medium to full body, great precision and concentration. Unlike most vintages of La Conseillante, the 2000 will require patience. A bottle kept open refused to oxidize until day six! Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025."

93 Points International Wine Cellar
"Medium-deep ruby. Captivating, perfumed nose combines blackberry, licorice and violet; exotic and sweet. Thick and intensely flavored, with the strong violet and exotic spice character carrying through on the palate. Offers a very firm structure, no doubt largely due to the wine substantial cabernet franc component. Ripe tannins spread out to cover the entire palate. Offers outstanding potential."

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Vivid aromas of berries, flowers and minerals follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with silky tannins and fresh, clean finish. Not the biggest Conseillante I have tasted, but refined and harmonious. This is getting expensive. Best after 2008. 5,000 cases made."
