|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
The 2013 La Conseillante definitely has one of the better Pomerol aromatic profiles with light, clean and fresh black cherry and cranberry scents, a touch of potpourri developing behind. The palate is medium-bodied with bitter cherry and cranberry notes, the oak jutting out a little at present and drying the finish. Austere for the normally more succulent and fleshier La Conseillante, hopefully it will coalesce with 3 or 4 years in bottle.
Lightly singed balsam and black tea notes give this a perfumy feel, with supple cherry preserves and blackberry sauce flavors filling out the core. This fills out slowly with air in the glass, but stays very elegant and silky overall. Approachable now, but should benefit from age.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
