Château La Conseillante
Located on Bordeaux’s Right Bank, Château La Conseillante is one of the most emblematic properties in Pomerol. With its roots tracing back to the 1700s, La Conseillante has been under the ownership of the Nicolas family for just about 150 years, and has uniquely remained unchanged ever since. Situated on the appellation’s boundary with Saint- Émilion, bordering those of L’Évangile and Cheval Blanc, the original 18 plots of vineyards stretch across 12-hectares in eastern Pomerol. Today, fifth generation Bertrand and Jean-Valmy as the joint managing directors, carry on to pursue higher levels of excellence. In 2007, they released the estate’s second wine, Duo de Conseillante. And by 2012 they renovated their winemaking facilities to allow for separate vinification of each vineyard holding. The Grand Vin, La Conseillante is a firmly structured Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend that is equally complex and rich of dark fruits and oriental spices. One of Pomerol’s greatest names, Château La Conseillante consistently produces five-star wines with a great sense of ancestral tradition.
