Product description

The 2006 vintage is airy; nice colour, animal notes on the nose, and a balanced mouth between acidity and softness. A crisp wine with a great texture that make this vintage very elegant. Drink now Stand the bottle upright 48 hours before serving to avoid any deposit. Mid to pale crimson. Sweet and flirtatious. Transparent. Doesn’t taste 14.5% at all! There is fesh acidity here and a certain meat-and-two-veg quality. You could enjoy it already although I’d be inclined to wait for more aromatic complexity to develop. Medium to deep garnet colour. Pretty perfume of freshly crushed raspberries / blackberries with nuances of wet leaves, cinnamon and white pepper. The medium to full bodied palate provides a good concentration of juicy berry fruit countered by medium to high acidity and a medium level of velvety tannins. Wonderfully balanced. Long finish with notes of white pepper. 13.4% alcohol. Drink 2010 - 2030. Tasted August 2009. Wine Advocate, Note : 95/100, 2009-11-01 Powerful, with a round, almost creamy core of blackberry and raspberry fruit all layered with cocoa, sweet toast, mesquite and fig paste. Long and rich through the finish. Still quite primal, with lots in reserve. Best from 2010 through 2030.
