2016 Duo de Conseillante, Pomerol (Bottle)

France Bordeaux Pomerol

The 2016 Duo de Conseillante is soft, open-knit and quite pretty. Sourced from some of the sandier plots on the estate, the Duo is pliant and expressive, but also shows a bit more of the elevated ripeness of the year, as these parcels don t retain as much moisture as the vineyards that are typically used for the Grand Vin. I would prefer to drink the Duo over the next handful of years.

Vinous

The 2016 Duo de Conseillante, matured in 50% new oak, has a pure, winsome bouquet of pretty red cherry and strawberry confit. The fresh palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, a slightly powdery texture and a brisk, saline finish. Crack this open over the next four to six years, since it can last longer than you might expect.
