The 11.8 hectares of the prestigious Chateau La Conseillante vineyard are planted in gray clay soils and gravelly sand in the heart of Pomerol. The vines are around 35 years old.
2019 was characterized by a mild winter and a cool spring. The hot, dry summer allowed the fruit to ripen fully. An ideal autumn season was punctuated by a few rainy days.
5 days pre-fermentation cold maceration. Fermentation for 4 weeks. 5% of production in “vinification intégrale”
