1983 Château La Conseillante Pomerol Wine Tasting Note

1983 Château La Conseillante  (Pomerol) 87

Past its prime, and from a difficult vintage for Pomerol, the nose offers barnyard, earth and animal scents along with red fruits. Round in texture, the medium-bodied wine has ripe, red fruits, but while the texture is fine, the finish is a bit short.

When to Drink Chateau La Conseillante, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau La Conseillante is much better with at least 8-12 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for 2-3 hours, or more. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau La Conseillante offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-35 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau La Conseillante with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Chateau La Conseillante is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Chateau La Conseillante is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes.

Chateau La Conseillante is also good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, salmon, mushrooms and pasta.
