2001 Château La Conseillante  (Pomerol) 96
Elegant, silky, vibrant and sensuous, pop and pour was all that was needed to bring out its truffle, flower and cherry filled nose. Poised and refined, the wine is fresh, medium-bodied and long, leaving you with touches of chocolate and cherries that linger in the finish.

The best showing ever for this vintage. The floral nuances with their strong violet component, truffles, tobacco and dark chocolate covered plum and cherry tones were exactly what the doctor ordered. Medium/full bodied, with a beautiful, refined, silky mouth feel, this is drinking great today. This could improve a but, but there is no reason not to be popping corks on this wine, if you have some in your cellar.

Showing some appropriate age at the edge of the glass, the wine is all truffle, tobacco, plum, flowers and spice. Silky, soft, plush and polished, this seductive, finesse styled Pomerol is drinking perfectly.

Cocoa, roses, black cherry, roses and truffle, medium bodied, refined and elegant in texture, the wine offers good freshness, but the fruit seems to be fading a bit. There is more acidity and less of the special lush quality found in La Conseillante. This is better on the nose than the palate. I’m going to finish my remaining bottles over the next few years before more of the fruit fades.

2001 La Conseillante offers strong scents of chocolate covered raspberry, flowers, cinnamon and smokey black cherry jam.In the mouth, the wine is elegance. Soft tannins and silky textures are followed with a black cherry, chocolate, spice and earthy perfume. I really liked the wine. While La Conseillante is always the quintessentially elegant Pomerol, I prefer the vintages with a little more concentration.

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.
