With a showy nose of licorice, smoke, espresso, cocoa and plums, the wine is round, fleshy, fruity, medium-bodied and already delicious to taste. It is difficult to find better wine in the price range on the planet. 88-90 Pts

Medium-bodied, red fruits and floral notes with an earthy accent starts off this 100% old vine Merlot-based wine. Medium-bodied, soft, sweet, fresh and ripe, the wine comes along with touches of truffle and cocoa to complicate the red fruits on the palate and in the soft, polished, sweet, fruit-filled finish. This is already quite tasty, so you can enjoy it on release. This is my favorite vintage of Le Conseiller yet. Drink from 2022-2033. 90 Pts

A top example of a Bordeaux value wine, with supple textures, ripe, sweet, dark, cherries, espresso, licorice and just a bit of chocolate in there for good measure. This is meant for early drinking pleasure.

From 100% Merlot, the wine is filled with tobacco, oak, soft textures and a forward style. The finish displays oak, so it's not for the oak averse. That being said, as long as you drink this young, it's one of the best Bordeax value wines available. 87-89 Pts
