Outer quote mark This is so perfumed and beautiful with violet, dark-berry and hazelnut aromas. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a juicy finish. Fresh and vivid. Second wine of Conseillante. Drink now or hold. Only 500 cases made. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Duo de Conseillante is soft, open-knit and quite pretty. Sourced from some of the sandier plots on the estate, the Duo is pliant and expressive, but also shows a bit more of the elevated ripeness of the year, as these parcels don't retain as much moisture as the vineyards that are typically used for the Grand Vin. I would prefer to drink the Duo over the next handful of years. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

The second wine of Château La Conseillante, Duo is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine fermented in concrete before it was pressed and racked to 50% new oak barrels in which it aged for 12 months. Neal Martin gave the 2016 La Conseillante a score of 96-98 in The Wine Advocate and described the wine as "very well balanced with a fine backbone, but what really marks out this La Conseillante is the salinity that comes through on the second half. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth, reveals a little spiciness towards the finish whereupon it gently fans out, leaving a touch of black pepper on the saline aftertaste."

Beautiful floral nose that carries through the gentle palate. It's an accessible wine that is sure to please from the get go, meaning you can drink it now, but you can put it away too for future pleasure.
