I don't think I've ever had a wine that has so much variation, bottle to bottle! Most have been excellent, but I've had one bottle that was "corked", one that was "cooked", and one that was "maderized"! However, tonights bottle was different!
Parker rates this Bordeaux Pomerol, 97 points! I decanted this bottle for one hour. From the bottle, it was brick red and obvisously appeared to be mature..... The 1990 La Conseillante is a very seductive wine with its high content of Merlot. Layers of coffee flavors, red and black fruit dominated this bottle. It was very elegant and possessed a lushiness that one would expect from a vintage 1990 Pomerol. So, with that said, tonights bottle is a 96-98 point winner!
