-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7

Always a Burgundian, feminine style of wine, La Conseillante’s 2001 exhibits aromas of plum and raspberry fruit as well as noticeable new oak in a medium-bodied, dark ruby/plum-colored format with excellent ripeness, but hard tannin in the finish. Although disjointed, it reveals signs of precociousness as well as some edginess and unintegrated tannin (the reason for the question mark). There is a lot going on in this elegant 2001, but it is not nearly as profound as the 2000. Nevertheless, it is the type of wine that may fool early tasters as it does need 2-3 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016.

This is rather jammy on the nose with macerated cherry, cassis and blueberry; a touch of soy developing with aeration although it does gain clarity in the glass. The ebullient palate is full-bodied, slightly overdone perhaps and in need of more acidity. Blueberry, plum, liquorice and game. Dense, tannic finish: this certainly needs more time and is even a little unresolved at present. Patience required but I have faith in this outstanding Pomerol. Tasted October 2007.
