About Winery

The name of La Conseillante appears in the middle of the 18th century. It has been given by Mrs Catherine Conseillan, who ran the estate almost 300 years before today. In 1871, the Nicolas family buy the property, which surface and plots remain unchanged since this period.

Today, the estate is managed by the fifth generation, assuring continuity and the attachment of a family to a great wine. D. Bertrand Nicolas and Jean-Valmy Nicolas are the managers of La Conseillante, and Jean-Michel Laporte is the Director.

The wine label of Les Héritiers Nicolas shows a shield with a silver border enclosing the letter "N". The violet cap represents the characteristic flavor of the wine. These items, chosen by the Nicolas brothers in 1871, remain elegantly relevant at the beginning of the 21st Century.

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Bright and vivid with green olive, berry and plum character. Hints of wet earth. Full body, yet tight and reserved. Ultra-fine tannins. Excellent wine for the vintage. Better in 2019. Inner quote mark (2/2016)

90-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A generous, resonant wine, the 2013 La Conseillante is impressive. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and menthol notes flesh out in a rich, inviting wine for the year. A long, persistent finish rounds things out in style. This is about as polished and finessed as things get in 2013. The only thing missing is the structure of a more important vintage. By any measure, the 2013 Conseillante is a tremendous achievement. The blend is 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc. The Merlot was picked between September 27 and October 5, while the Cabernet Franc was picked from October 5 to 7. Tasted twice. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Intense black-currant acidity and dry tannins dominate this wine. It’s juicy, fruity and ripe, without a huge, overwhelming structure. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2014)
