Château La Conseillante has been sold as La Conseillante since at least 1756. It is widely acknowledged to have some of the best terroir in the appellation sitting as it does wedged between Vieux Châteaux Certan, L’Evangile, Cheval Blanc and Pétrus (see map below). La Conseillante was bought by the Nicolas family in 1871, and they are the still the owners today. In 2003 Jean-Michel Laporte became manager of the Pomerol wine with the famous purple label. The bottle is one of many people’s favourite in all of Bordeaux! The vineyard is roughly 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. Intriguingly, 30% of vines are actually in Saint-Émilion! The wine is luxurious and velvety. Not the most powerful or ripest Pomerol, but in many experts’ eyes the most harmonious.
