Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The La Conseillante ’09 has a very seductive bouquet with lifted kirsch, mulberry and light honeyed tones ” all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a sensual but insistent entry. There are layers of ripe dark cherry, spicebox, black pepper and Provencal herbs with great weight and persistency on the finish. Superb. Tasted January 2013.
