Wine tasting note: 1995 Conseillante Bordeaux

1995 Conseillante Bordeaux

6th Apr 1998 GBP45 Bordeaux Table Red

A young Pomerol, just to keep the tasters on their toes!
Deep garnet fading to an amber/red at the rim.
Brooding, dense, alcoholic nose with notes of stewed cassis, fruitcake, oak and green leaves.
Big, chewy, up front flavours of plums, fruitcake and spicy, smoky oak. Well rounded with good acidity and firm, underlying tannins. Outstanding.
Approachable now but 5 or more years will really bring out the class in this wine.
