Neal Martin 98/100
The 2010 La Conseillante briefly suggested a little oxidation, however, returning to my glass it feels more stable with detailed black fruit laced with black truffle, humidor and cedar aromas. It meliorates with each passing minute in the glass. The palate is very harmonious and tender, with a touch of viscosity, fanning out wonderfully on the finish. Outstanding.

A brilliant effort from this property, known for the sheer elegance and finesse of its wines, the 2010 La Conseillante offers back-to-back monumental efforts, particularly given the remarkable 2009. This estate has been on a hot streak of late. The 2010 is a slightly bigger, richer wine, but without losing its floral, elegant mulberry, black raspberry and sweet kirsch notes. Combine those with some licorice, subtle new oak and a hint of forest floor, and the result is a medium to full-bodied, rich, complex wine that has striking aromatics and perfect balance in the mouth.
