2006 Chateau la Conseillante, Pomerol (12 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux Pomerol

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then at the château. The 2006 Château La Conseillante had perhaps the most show-stopping bouquet out of all seventy-odd 2006s that I tasted at ten years. It explodes from the glass with raspberry coulis, kirsch, honey and marmalade, so much so that I am not sure if I would nail it as a Bordeaux, let alone a Pomerol! It is precocious and very attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe red cherry and strawberry fruit, plenty of black truffle, fine tannin and well-judged acidity. This is an opulent, decadent La Conseillante that is atypical of the vintage and yet you totally fall for its charms. What it might lack in subtlety, it makes up for in sheer charm. Tasted January 2016.

Vinous

Bright ruby-red. Lively, classic Conseillante nose features blueberry, blackberry, violet, licorice and spices, along with pepper and menthol nuances from the 15% cabernet franc component. Juicy, cool and vibrant, with lovely definition to the black fruit, mint and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes fresh and firmly tannic, with a ripe suggestion of dark chocolate. This will need time in bottle but should gain in power with eight to ten years of cellaring.

The 2006 La Conseillante has a surprisingly rich and opulent bouquet that might lack complexity but goes for sheer hedonism. Mulberry, hints of fresh fig and prune, this is a La Conseillante that has avowed not to be outshone by the previous two vintages, though you can argue that it accomplishes that in rather obvious fashion. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. There is plenty of truffle tinged red fruit and an engaging rounded texture, but now it is beginning to lose its complexity and it feels just a tad monotonous against the splendid 2005. Tasted at La Conseillante vertical at the property.

Vinous

Bright ruby-red. Sexy nose combines dark berries, violet, cedar, mocha, truffle and smoky oak. Plush, succulent and sweet, but with lovely delineation to the pliant black cherry and raspberry flavors. At once opulent and vibrant, finishing with a fine dusting of tannins and compelling sweetness. This has an almost Burgundian texture reminiscent of some of this chateau s great vintages of the past. It s hard to imagine this silky wine shutting down in the bottle.
