Château La Conseillante, 2009

RRP £165

Fleshy, carnal purple-fruit sweetness (suggestive synaesthesia, perhaps, purple being the château’s trademark, and almost inextricably linked with it in the mind). Violets (yes, purple flowers, too), and an intriguing, almost soapy note. In the mouth, this has the feather-light texture characteristic of La Conseillante during the 2000s. Then towards the finish, the wine yields more meaty flavours to chew your way through. There is lots of fresh acidity from start to finish, which lifts it now, and will do long into the future. Finally, a long, delicate aftertaste.
