Château La Conseillante
The name « La Conseillante » first appeared in the middle of the 18th century. The property was named after Catherine Conseillan, who ran the estate 300 years ago. In 1871, the Nicolas family bought the domaine which has remained unchanged since. The wine label of “Les Heritiers Nicolas” shows a shield with a silver border enclosing the letter “N” and a violet cap, which represents the flavor of the wine. These images, chosen by the Nicolas brothers in 1871, remain elegantly relevant as we enter the 21st Century. At La Conseillante, each parcel is managed individually at every stage of the winemaking process, thanks to the vats of varying capacities.
