2003 La Conseillante, Pomerol (1.5L)

SKU #1283472 90 points James Suckling

 This is round, soft, and fruity. An attractive plum and berry character make this wine easy and friendly right now. It still has nice freshness and subtlety, with some floral undertones.  (4/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Very pretty aromas of crushed berry, sandalwood and raspberry jam. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins. Balanced and refined. Well done. (JS)  (7/2006)

Jancis Robinson

 Deep garnet. Cedar and rich blackcurrant. Inviting intensity. A bit more cedary on the palate. Rich, sweet fruit in the mid palate and resolved tannins. Just enough freshness. (JH)  (3/2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 La Conseillante’s 2003 is better than expected given the sandy, gravelly soils of this sector of Pomerol, which did not fare well in this vintage. Sweet raspberry fruit intermixed with licorice, incense and a touch of herbs are followed by a medium-bodied, fully mature, ripe wine to enjoy over the next 3-4 years. (RP)  (8/2014)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good fresh dark red. Explosive aromas of sweet cherry, coffee and toasty oak. Sweet, fat, broad and easygoing but with good tension for the vintage. Can't match the 2004 or 2005 for complexity and freshness of flavor, but this boasts a suave texture. Finishes with dusty tannins and some vanillin oak. (ST)  (5/2006)

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
