The quintessential elegant style of Pomerol, the 2011 La Conseillante offers copious aromas of raspberries, mulberries and spring flowers. Medium-bodied with pure fruit, seamlessly integrated tannin, acidity and wood, and a soft, velvety textured finish, this classic effort is ethereal in its elegance and precision. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The La Conseillante is a blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc. It has a very well defined bouquet with attractive dark berry and mulberry aromas, the terroir really coming through with subtle notes of black truffle. The palate is medium-bodied and I think Jean-Michel has really achieved very the filigree tannins this year, rendering this the most feminine La Conseillante I have tasted. It is silky smooth and yet there is certainly a tensile structure that should see it age nicely over 15-20 years. It is very composed, almost understated towards the finish, but this shows great persistency in the mouth without being overpowering. A “controlled” La Conseillante” with just a elegant, beautiful finish. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Pretty blueberry and chocolate character. Medium to full body, with fine tannins and a chocolate, spice and almond. Delicate style. 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Deep black cherry. Aromatic, ripe fruit with a leaning toward cough linctus. Lovely freshness on the palate, juicy and fresh and lively and leaves your mouth revitalised. One of the most attractive Pomerols I've tasted so far in this vintage. Tannins well judged. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Gentle extraction (advised by new consultant, ex-JP Moueix winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet). Accent on the fruit. Less volume than 2009 and 2010 but good length and balance. Drink 2018-2030. Decanter.com

From 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc, the wine will be aged in 80% new oak. The wine reached 13.4% alcohol. Flowers, truffle, black raspberry, coffee, spice and earthy scents create a complex perfume. Pure silk and velvet with ample freshness, acidity and chalky tannins, this is a classic vintage for La Conseillante.-Jeff Leve, theWineCellarInsider.com

Tasted twice, both times the wine showed very well. The tannins of La Conseillante this year are plush, full, very dense and ripe. This layered wine with 82% Merlot displays plums, blackberries and black Chinese red dates on the palate. It has a very long finish and plush tannins. Classic La Conseillante - sophisticated and classy. Jeannie Cho Lee MW, AsianPalate.com

One of the best wines of the vintage. the 2011 Conseillante has a wonderful nose reminiscient of a top Richebourg. Very fine indeed with wonderful liqueur fruit in the middle and really impressive length.
