2009 La Conseillante, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1055127 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This tasted brilliant in London a few weeks ago at the Bordeaux 10 Years On tasting, but even better in New York. There's so much complexity on offer - the natural elegance pumped up with dark chocolate, graphite and liquorice layering up through the damson and blackberry fruits. A gorgeous, delicious wine with a blast of freshly crushed mint leaf on the finish. This was the third vintage since a second wine was launched in 2007, helping the winemaking team to concentrate and refine this main bottling. Jean-Michel Laporte was director at the time, with Gilles Paquet as consultant. (JA) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blackberries, violets and licorice, with hints of lavender. Full body, with phenomenal texture of ultra-fine tannins and subtle and intriguing fruit character. Goes on for minutes. Try in 2020. Inner quote mark (3/2012)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 La Conseillante has a very classy and sophisticated bouquet with beautifully defined black and red fruit mixed with black truffle and pressed rose petals. The oak is just completely subsumed here. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe and saturated tannin, a fine line of acidity, fresh and tensile with a sense of mineralité on the finish. This bottle shows even better than the one poured at the property 12 months earlier. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Similar in style to the 2015, the 2009 La Conseillante is another sexy, seductive, opulent even, Pomerol that offers a huge array of spiced dark fruits, cured meats, crushed flowers, and truffle. Deep, full-bodied, layered and beautifully pure, with an extroverted personality that just begs to be drunk, it will keep for another three decades or more. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The competition between the 2009, 2005 and 2000 La Conseillante will be interesting to follow over the next twenty years. There was more of a selection process at this estate in 2009 than there was in 2000, resulting in a beautiful Pomerol offering notes of mulberries, sweet cherries, spring flowers, raspberries and truffles. The color is a healthy deep plum/ruby/purple and the wine is medium to full-bodied with silky tannins, a broad, layered mouthfeel and wonderful freshness as well as length. This gorgeous, complex, Burgundian-styled Pomerol will be drinkable in 4-6 years and should keep for 30-40. (The 1970 is still alive and that was not nearly as well made as the 2009.) (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2011)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This delivers stunning toasted spice, mocha and black tea aromas, while the core of plum, blackberry and fig flavors is still rather reticent. The long finish is liberally laced with a racy graphite note, while the perfumy accent pervades. This will be a suave head-turner when it rounds into form. Best from 2018 through 2030. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Bright crimson. A burnt, savoury edge. Lively, not too sweet. Thicker than wine 6 in this flight [Hosanna 2009]. Well balanced and quite Cabernet. Really fresh and long – all on the finish. But a bit dry on the end. 17.5/20 Inner quote mark (2/2019)

K&L Notes

96 points Lisa Perotti-Brown MW for Wine Advocate: "The medium to deep garnet colored 2009 La Conseillante strides confidently out of the glass with very classy Black Forest cake, blueberry compote and kirsch scents plus suggestions of violets, liquid licorice, cardamom and bay leaves with a touch of eucalyptus. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly fruited with a firm, grainy frame and oodles of freshness, finishing long and minerally." (3/2019)
