Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau La Conseillante 2009


Lobenberg: Schwarz. Sehr feine Brombeernase mit Rauch und Espresso, kubanischer Tabak mit schwarzer Kirsche, satte Valrhona-Bitterschokolade, etwas exotische Orangenschale, Maracuja, sehr reifer Apfel. Rassiger Mund mit satter Kraft, immenses Tannin mit Kraft, aber nicht spröde, geschliffen und sehr fein, dann kommt Schwarzkirsche und feine, rote Waldfrucht darunter, Nutella, ein Hauch Brombeere, Eukalyptus und Minze, die rassige Finesse mit dem gleichzeitigen ultraweichen Tanninteppich ist schwer beeindruckend. In der Frühform sehe ich ihn vor den großen Erfolgen 1990, 1998 und 2005, die Harmonie und Balance sind groß! Das ist superb. 97-98/100


Suckling über: Chateau La Conseillante

-- Suckling: At once deep and rich, yet cool and delicate with a minty freshness, this is a really concentrated and super-elegant Pomerol that's now very seductive, but has the structure and vitality to live for a long time. 97/100


Galloni über: Chateau La Conseillante

-- Galloni: The 2009 La Conseillante has a very classy and sophisticated bouquet with beautifully defined black and red fruit mixed with black truffle and pressed rose petals. The oak is just completely subsumed here. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe and saturated tannin, a fine line of acidity, fresh and tensile with a sense of mineralité on the finish. This bottle shows even better than the one poured at the property 12 months earlier. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. 97/100


Decanter über: Chateau La Conseillante

-- Decanter: This tasted brilliant in London a few weeks ago at the Bordeaux 10 Years On tasting, but even better in New York. There's so much complexity on offer - the natural elegance pumped up with dark chocolate, graphite and liquorice layering up through the damson and blackberry fruits. A gorgeous, delicious wine with a blast of freshly crushed mint leaf on the finish. This was the third vintage since a second wine was launched in 2007, helping the winemaking team to concentrate and refine this main bottling. Jean-Michel Laporte was director at the time, with Gilles Paquet as consultant. 97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau La Conseillante

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Similar in style to the 2015, the 2009 La Conseillante is another sexy, seductive, opulent even, Pomerol that offers a huge array of spiced dark fruits, cured meats, crushed flowers, and truffle. Deep, full-bodied, layered and beautifully pure, with an extroverted personality that just begs to be drunk, it will keep for another three decades or more.This tiny, yet brilliantly run estate covers 11.8 hectares of sandy, gravely soils located between Vieux Château Certain, Château L’Evangile, and Cheval Blanc. Managed by the talented and vivacious Marielle Cazaux, they produce one of the most exotic, perfumed, and elegant wines of the appellation, yet it never lacks for fruit and/or texture. Harvest is all by hand and done block by block, the grapes are fermented in concrete tanks, and the wine spends roughly 18 months in 70% new French oak, from a number of different coopers including Seguin-Moreau, Taransaud, Baron, and Darnajou. Production is around 3,200 cases. While all of the recent vintages showed beautifully, I suspect the 2016 will be the finest wine to date from this estate. 96/100


Parker über: Chateau La Conseillante

-- Parker: Now that La Conseillante is making a second wine with more severe selection, think of the 2009 as a version of the 2000 on steroids. This is never going to be a blockbuster wine, because the terroir just seems to produce silky, elegant wines, but in this case, the 2009 has an extra kick and level of concentration that is unprecedented. Inky bluish purple, with an extraordinary nose of framboise, black raspberries, spring flowers, spice box, and a hint of truffle, the wine has great depth, full-bodied opulence, silky tannins, enormous power and richness, but again, a vibrancy and uplift that are just freakish in this vintage. That’s one of the great hallmarks of 2009 and one that will always stand out over the next 30 years. This wine should be drinkable in 5-7 years and last 40 or more. (Tasted three times.) 95-98/100

Wine Spectator über: Chateau La Conseillante

-- Wine Spectator: This delivers stunning toasted spice, mocha and black tea aromas, while the core of plum, blackberry and fig flavors is still rather reticent. The long finish is liberally laced with a racy graphite note, while the perfumy accent pervades. This will be a suave head-turner when it rounds into form. Best from 2018 through 2030. 4,000 cases made. 96/100
