Château La Conseillante 2010

RRP £148.33

Also family-owned, by the Nicolas cousins (no connection to the chain of UK wine shops), La Conseillante in 2010 has a rich, spicy nose, hedonistic with fresh-cut wood and nostril-tingling spice – black pepper, juniper and paprika. In the mouth it has the most wonderful, joyous limpidity; it floats and caresses. Then its latent tannic power builds up and strokes the inside of the cheeks, testament to the deft touch of then-winemaker Jean-Michel Laporte. It leaves you with a savoury aftertaste.
