The wine last night was the 2015 Clos René Pomerol Right Bank Bordeaux. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec.
On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, black currant, violets, anise, faint hints of oak and earth.
On the palate there is bkack cherry, black raspberry, plum, blaxk currant, licorice, minerals and earth.
This is a full bodied wine with a silky smooth mouthfeel, medium to medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins that moves into a long dark fruit earthy finish. As we move firmly into spring and into this coming weekend lets enjoy our lifes fortunate new beginnings. Let us keep or eyes, minds and hearts open to all lifes new rewards. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 6 days ago

Off to the right bank and the most affordable top notch Pomerol that isn’t Petrus - VCC. Opened up with a bouquet of graphite, truffles and dark fruits that was reflected perfectly in the palate. Good structure and finish but I kind of expected it to develop a bit more given the character and charm out of the gate. Great experience overall. — 10 days ago

The 2018 La Conseillante is a regal and utterly exquisite Pomerol from the very first taste. Technical Director Marielle Cazaux and her team turned out a jewel of a wine. Silky tannins and lifted, precise aromatics make a strong first impression. Inky dark fruit, pain grillé, lavender, spice, menthol and a kiss of new French oak all flesh out over time. More than anything else, what comes through is the new emphasis at La Conseillante on freshness and verve. The 2018 is a Pomerol of tremendous precision. It is, in a word: dynamite!
