With the grand finale of Bordeaux 2010 futures prices just around the corner, top Right Bank estates La Conseillante (Pomerol), Eglise Clinet (Pomerol) and Figeac (Saint Emilion), have all released their 2010 Bordeaux futures prices. Roger Bohmrich had the chance to taste La Conseillante and Figeac when he was in Bordeaux in April. Here were his impressions:
[quote]The 2010 La Conseillante is already distinguished as a barrel sample. To the nose, this Pomerol has focus and concentration with a subtle complexity. The aroma is particularly fine and marked by red currant and red cherry fruit and a touch of vanilla. The wine delivers a focused, freshly-defined palate with subtle, ripe, integrated tannins and an overlay of new oak. Although reserved, it is clear that this is a high-class example with a distinctive personality among Pomerol wines.[/quote]
[quote]The purity and class of the 2010 Figeac barrel sample are quite evident. There are fully mature dark red fruits with lift, subtle nuances and an overall sense of freshness. In the mouth, the wine impresses even more, revealing a layering of fruit in an elegant format. This is a very fine wine combining the ripeness of the vintage with noteworthy finesse.[/quote]
