Bummed to miss it this year.

Château La Dominique

Grand Cru Classé St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Mid to dark Crimson. Initially not giving much on the nose after decanting. After some time and a lot of swirling in the glass, aromas of black currant and McBaren’s Plum Cake pipe tobacco which I used to smoke at college many decades ago. Unusually for La Dominque this is 100% Merlot with zero Cabernet Franc. Palate is still lively and fresh with a long future ahead. Supple and persistent. La Dominique is surrounded by high profile neighbours with the best parcels bordered by Cheval Blanc. Other neighbours include Figeac, Conseillante and L’Evangile. Will leave the next for 2 or 3 years. — a month ago

Lovely domaine, I like your description (MCBaren’s Plum Cake pipe tobacco 🙃 we both stopped smoking, I guess... but still miss this)

Tried a few styles of pipe tobacco Peter back then but often came back to the McBarens Plum Cake - very aromatic.

Château Angélus

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

On any normal night this shows very well. Just not on a night where it's paired against 90 la Conseillante. — 6 years ago

Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Delectable Wine
9.7

The 2005 La Conseillante is a rich, heady Pomerol. Crème de cassis, lavender, chocolate, leather, espresso, licorice and sweet French oak infuse the 2005 with tremendous character. The 2005 is, naturally, a wine of its era. There is quite a bit of extraction and tannin, and yet the wine has aged impeccably. Time in the glass brings out energy and aromatic lift to round things out nicely. The 2005 just got better and better with time, so I suggest giving it a good bit of air. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2021)
