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)

So easy to drink now, some mature secondary notes of flavor and aroma. You can go two ways with this wine, sit back and turn off the brain and enjoy it. Or dive in and analyze each layer or flavor and texture as it unfolds over the palate. Either way everyone wins! #conseillante #pomerol

WOTN. Powerful nose of graphite, tar, cherries, and earth. Super deep wine with an excellent texture. Medium plus finish. Phenomenal wine, but pricey.

Very young, fruity taste, not the mellow smooth finish I'm looking for in a 2005. Had with steak on the grill -- ok match
