2007 La Conseillante, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)
According to the Wine Spectator: "Balanced and pretty, with light toasty oak, coffee and crushed blackberry on the nose. Full-bodied... Offers polished tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2012." (03/10) 87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium red-ruby. Aromas of raspberry, black cherry, flowers, licorice and spices, lifted by pepper and fresh herbs; cellarmaster Arguti describes the wine as "very Pomerol" but it also struck me as rather Burgundian. Juicy, aromatic, slightly dry-edged black fruit and licorice flavors show red berries and pepper with aeration. A very fresh and vivid style, without quite the structure of the 2006. But this is elegant and pure. Aging in 75% new oak, vs. 100% for the '06 and 05." (May/June '08) K&L's notes - Great sweetness and fine flavor. This wine is delicious. At UGC it was great again. Very elegant and soft on the palate. Ripe blackberry flavors. Sweet and long... I love it. 85% Merlot and 15% Cab Franc. Ralph: Outstanding. Incredible balance. This is one of the most delicious wines of the vintage - elegance personified. Please note - 2007 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2010 and Dec 2010. We will contact you for shipping instructions.
