1995 La Conseillante
|Vineyard:||Chateau La Conseillante|
International Wine CellarRating: 89/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 78, May/June 1998. Good ruby-red. Aromas of red fruits, clove, tomato, dill and smoky oak. Supple, sweet and charming, with slow-to-open red fruit flavors and suave texture. Finishes with very good length, integrated tannins and a hint of menthol. Very attractive wine, but misses out on the concentration and ripeness of the vintage best examples from Pomerol.
