1981 La Conseillante, Pomerol (high shoulder, lighty scuffed label, signs of past seepage) (Previously $120)

SKU #950453 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This wine has just begun its slide down the slippery slope. It was an outstanding La Conseillante that drank beautifully young. Once the baby fat began to fade in the mid-nineties, the wine was less enticing, although still an excellent, and perhaps outstanding if drunk from larger format bottles (i.e., magnum). The wine possesses a deep ruby color with some lightening at the edge. The toasty, cherry and raspberry-scented nose is followed by smoky, roasted herb, sweet cherry and raspberry flavors judiciously infused with spicy oak. The acidity is adequate, and the tannin and fat have faded away. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/1998)

Wine Spectator
