1981 La Conseillante, Pomerol

SKU #950285 Jancis Robinson

 Lustrous ruby. Lovely mellow nose with the scent of fading rose petals. Sweet start and very round and positive. Quite delicate. This is a wine on a tightrope. It's fragile and drying out. I feel that the old really wonderful New World Merlots of the 1980s or early 1990s may be tasting like this now.  (12/2010)

Wine Spectator

 Good, mature garnet color with meaty berry and earthy aromas and flavors. Still fresh with a firm backbone of tannins and lovely chocolate notes.  (10/1994)

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.
