Lot #88. La Conseillante 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 98 RP.
"One of the all-time great La Conseillantes, this wine, which to me has similarities to a grand cru Burgundy from the likes of Henri Jayer, still has a deep ruby/purple color and an exotic, even flamboyant bouquet of vanilla, kirsch liqueur, raspberries, licorice, and Asian spice. Full-bodied, very opulent, with low acidity, yet consistently a velvety-textured, full-bodied mouthful, this endearing, very seductive wine clearly demonstrated why Pomerols are often called the 'Burgundies of Bordeaux.' The wine still seems surprisingly youthful despite its accessibility, and should continue to develop . . ." Bordeaux Book, 4th Edition, Dec 2002
Notes: Very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $325
