The Château La Conseillante is among the elite of the greatest wines of Pomerol, leaving no wine lover indifferent. It was Catherine Conseillan who in 1735 decided to give her name to this already famous Domaine, whose neighbors were no less famous Châteaux such as Evangile, Pétrus and Cheval Blanc. In 1871, the property was acquired by the Nicolas family and today, Jean-Valmy Bertrand Nicolas represent the fifth generation to produce a great wine whose reputation has crossed borders.
The Château La Conseillante is based on a vineyard of 12 hectares of vines planted on soils of gray clay and sandy gravel with a subsoil of red clay due to the presence of iron dross, conferring a unique singularity to the wines.
The grape variety is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wines are aged for an average of 18 months in French oak barrels, of which 50 to 70% are new. 3% of the production is aged in amphorae.
The property produces a Second wine, Duo de La Conseillante, which offers another side of this exceptional terroir.
The Château La Conseillante delivers quite exceptional wines, known for being silky, elegant and balanced in power, marked by a finesse and mineral touch not found elsewhere.
