1970 La Conseillante, Pomerol

SKU #1010284 94 points Wine Spectator

 Deep ruby-garnet; ripe cassis and tar nose; very rich, spicy and generous, with great vigor and personality; lovely, intense fruit flavors; a splendid Pomerol.  (5/1993)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This was a stunning performance for this wine, which I had thought was ever so slightly beginning to decline. In this tasting, the 1970 La Conseillante exhibited the sweet, truffle, caramel, mocha, jammy black-cherry, and toasty nose of this renowned estate, as well as sweet, round, concentrated flavors, and a lush, velvety texture, with a heady, alcoholic, rich finish. This was my last bottle out of what was a glorious case of wine. While I may have drunk the other eleven too soon, every bottle was drained quickly after the cork was pulled. (RP)  (6/1996)

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.
