This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

La Conseillante wine dinner

A dinner at Aberdeen Marina Club featuring the wines of Château La Conseillante, with both the owner as well as the winemaker in attendance.

2004 La Conseillante - actually very new world/Californian in style. Very fruit-forward and a departure from the classic Pomerol. Pretty enjoyable.

2001 La Conseillante - an underrated vintage and very classic Pomerol. Not as forward but I can see this drinking really well in a few years.

2000 La Conseillante - One of the stellar vintages in recent years, but this is still very tannic and closed. There is potential for this to develop beautifully but surprisingly not as accessible as the other 2000's.

1995 La Conseillante - very drinkable today...classic Pomerol and fantastic nose.

1989 La Conseillante en magnum - definitely wine fo the evening. This wine is soooo beautiful. The nose just hits you and very smooth on the palate. Most of us would prefer this over the celebrated '90.

1982 La Conseillante en magnum - a close second to the 1989. Needed more time to open up, but still very enjoyable and cannot complain.

Full post on dinner is here.
