Château La Conseillante

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Great showing. Blackcurrant, flowers, cedar and a dollop of mint. Medium bodied, oh so elegant, fresh, balanced, bottle finishes and you keep asking for more. Drink or hold if you can. Very highly recommended !!! — 3 years ago

Thank you @Sharon B ! 🙏🙏


Canberra District Riesling 2011

I purchase Clonakilla Riesling most years along with their stellar Shiraz Viognier, their Syrah and sometimes their Viognier. Proven to age slowly this Riesling had white florals and Talc on the nose with a herbal note and no Kerosene. Honey and Lime on the palate with reduced acidity compared to its youth. A very good aged Riesling reaching its maturity and good QPR. Wines like this prove the worth of having a good cellar. See many previous notes from older vintages. — 3 years ago

@Dawn E. They are delicious with some age Dawn. Not sure if you see them in the USA? Their Shiraz Viognier is the best of that blend in Australia - generally regarded.

This is so incredibly delicious and interesting! Layers of flavors going on in this glass! I could spend an hour deciphering this wine! Refer to @Severn Goodwin and @Lyle Fass notes on this; they nailed this spot on! 👍 Super long finish like my tongue is stuck on the roof of my palate! 😁 This is my first experience with this producer...simply elegant! 🍒🍓🥝 — 3 years ago

Napa Valley Merlot 2014

1ltr format. Loved everything about it. No sign of premature aging. Wish we had more. Would be difficult to pick this as a merlot, if tasted blind... — 3 years ago
