If ever there is a certainty about assured success in Pomerol it is that Alexandre Thienpont will make a show-stopping wine. VCC 2005 is nothing less than a brilliant wine that exudes class from the first hint of perfume to an extraordinarily long finish. Plump and lavishly opulent, Alexandre has coaxed the most ambrosial flavours from perfectly ripened fruit. A benchmark and a monument to Pomerol 2005. A beautiful, sensuous, silky, pomerol that proves that coaxing flavours from fruit reaps finer rewards than a bullying approach. An 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc assemblage.

Slightly closed on the nose at this stage, with subtle notes of white flowers and candied tropical fruits. On the palate, this is supremely well balanced, with rich, unctuous honeyed fruit, balanced by a touch minerality and a deliciously fresh touch. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
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.
