ABOUT THE WINE

The name of La Conseillante appears in the middle of the 18th century. It has been given by Mrs Catherine Conseillan, who ran the estate almost 300 years before today. In 1871, the Nicolas family buy the property, which surface and plots remain unchanged during this period. Today, the estate is managed by the fifth generation, assuring continuity and the attachment of a family to a great wine. D. Bertrand Nicolas and Jean-Valmy Nicolas are the managers of La Conseillante, and Jean-Michel Laporte is the Director.

TASTING NOTES

Ruby/plum/purple colour and an unbelievably expressive nose of sweet kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, incense, toast, and liquorice. Full-bodied yet ethereal in the sense that it seems to combine power along with eloquence and delicacy, this is a beautifully pure wine that has just hit its plateau of full maturity, although ideally it would benefit strongly from another 4-5 years of bottle age and drink well for two to three decades.

FOOD PAIRING
