Winemaker and Estate Director Jean-Michel Laporte advised that the harvest took place between 17th and 27th September and that the assemblage was 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. As one has come to expect of the property in recent years, they have turned out one of the successes of the commune. Whilst not a heavyweight, La Conseillante displays luscious, attractive fruit, poise and refreshing fruit. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
Deep, near opaque in the glass with mineral, graphite and cool, ripe fruit on the nose. On the palate there is a fragrant note to the dark cherry and currant fruit, with earthy, leafy elements too. More compact than many in this vintage, this has pleasing harmony and gentle direction lent to the fruit by soft, round tannins. A forward and attractive La Mission. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
Sourced from three distinct parcels with an average vine age of 40 years. Enticing nose of white flowers, mineral and lemon rind, the palate is rounded with hallmark grapefruit acidity and a long chalky finish. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
Unusual, flinty nose, with notes of iron filings, spicy black fruit and new oak. The palate is dense and complete, with blueberry and a long tarry finish. Demonstrates the individuality of this great Grand Cru beautifully. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
