2000 La Conseillante - Wine Advocate # 134 - Apr 2001: La Conseillante's 2000 is a profound wine, revealing more concentration than usual. Undoubtedly a fine effort, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a spectacular nose of smoke-infused black raspberries and kirsch liqueur. As the wine sits in the glass, the nose builds, offering explosive aromas of new wood, Asian spice, and an exotic hint of incense. Velvety-textured and gorgeously pure, with extraordinary levels of glycerin, low acidity, moderately high tannin, and a multi-tiered palate presence, this fabulous terroir has produced one of the vintage's legends. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.
