1986 La Conseillante, Pomerol

SKU #950782 93 points Wine Spectator

 Just what you expect from top-class Pomerol. Complex fruit, mint and leather aromas are followed by rich, smooth, almost chocolaty flavors and soft tannins. Chewy and long-lasting on the finish.  (6/1989)

Jancis Robinson

 Rather luscious colour. Sweet and still fresh. Deep ruby but with lots of development at the rim. Lovely sweetness and completeness. Long and fresh. Bravo! Firm. Complete. Very long. Still vigorous. Very sweet but dusty. Gunpowder. Admirably youthful. 17/20 Points (JR)  (12/2010)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- 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.
