"Shows impressive power and purity, with waves of blueberry, fig and spice notes backed by black tea and graphite. Velvety and very long, this has some power in reserve, but it's really silky. A beauty." (WS)

"A monumental La Conseillante, the 2010 completes a remarkable decade for this estate. Quintessentially floral, this dense purple-colored effort reveals sweet flowery black raspberry and blueberry liqueur notes, more power, muscle and concentration than most vintages and exquisite elegance, purity and personality. Serious tannin lurks beneath the surface, but the overall impression is of a medium to full-bodied, strikingly deep, beautifully pure, well-balanced wine. Give it 3-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30+." (WA)

"Opaque ruby. Knockout aromas of raspberry, rose petal and minerals. Wonderfully sweet and bright on entry, then more savory in the middle, with very good lift and precision to its raspberry, blackcurrant, floral and chocolate flavors. Boasts outstanding subtle depth and finishes long and perfumed, with mounting ripe tannins." (IWC)

"Produced from an assemblage of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, (which is the same as the vineyard plantings,) the wine reached 14.5% alcohol, which is slightly higher than what they achieved in 2009. Due to the high levels of acidity from a low 3.69 pH, there is no sensation of heat. Floral, chocolate, truffle and black raspberry liqueur aromas, the wine is dark and powerful, a unique for La Conseillante. The rich, intense, plum liqueur, chocolate and black cherry palate combines freshness, silky textures and a sense of refined elegance with the volume turned up. Jean- Michel Laporte feels 2010 is in the same style as 2005." (JL)

"The nose is exuberant, with pure violets and berries. Insane. This is so straight and racy, with super fine tannins and a long, long finish. There is a minimalist clarity to the wine. Superb.$$" (JS)
