JS97-98: A very fine, ethereal wine, offering blueberries, white truffles and violets. Full body and a wonderful texture with tannins that spread across the palate, caressing the mouth. Really polished to the finest grain. Extremely long. Shows strength with finesse.

VM97-99: The 2019 La Conseillante was picked 17-20 September for the Merlot and 30 September and 7 October for the Cabernet Franc. Yields were low at just 34hl/ha. The Grand Vin is aged in 70% new French oak, 27% one-year old barrels and 3% in clay amphora. Limpid purple in colour, this has an exquisite bouquet with pixelated blackberry and raspberry scents, laced with pressed iris and a touch of graphite. It reminds me of a less powerful version of the 2010 when I tasted that from barrel. The palate is very smooth with ebullient red and black fruit on the entry, then it tapers in a little, towards a very cohesive, satin-textured middle. This is definitely one of the purest La Conseillante wines that I have encountered from barrel. It delivers a subtle spiciness towards the finish with hints of tobacco and clove on the persistent aftertaste. Winemaker Marielle Cazaux and her team have conjured a magnificent Pomerol here.

JD98-100: One of the wines of the vintage, as well as one of the greatest young Pomerols I've ever tasted, the 2019 Conseillante checks in as a blend of 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc from tiny yields and is still resting in 70% new French oak. This vivid purple-hued beauty has a classic Conseillante bouquet of black and blue fruits, crushed violets, chocolate, tobacco, and a hint of white truffle. This carries to a full-bodied, powerful yet exceedingly elegant Pomerol with terrific purity, flawless balance, silky tannins, and a monster of finish. It doesn't have the sheer structure of Petrus or Vieux Chateau Certan, yet no one in Pomerol marries elegance with sexy fruit and opulence as well as Conseillante. Hats off to Marielle Cazaux for producing one of the top 2-3 wines of the vintage.
