One of the truly glorious 1985 Pomerols, and a worthy candidate for the wine of the vintage, La Conseillante's 1985 has been fully mature since the late eighties. The flamboyant aromatics consist of smoke, roasted herbs, and jammy black raspberry fruit intermingled with kirsch and pain grille. In the mouth, an abundant concoction of berry, chocolate, coffee, and mocha emerges. This has always been a seductive, silky-textured, medium-bodied wine. Anticipated maturity: Now-2005. Last tasted 11/97. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1.
