The 2006 vintage has very deep colour, an intense fruity character and, to our delight, an impressive tannic structure. This vintage will undoubtedly be well-balanced, silky and elegant. In short: a great wine that is a credit to its terroir. A full, complex wine, excellent with roast pigeon.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A superb success for the vintage, the 2006 exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a poised, classic bouquet of sweet black cherries, graphite, camphor, truffles, and a subtle hint of oak. Medium-bodied with a stunningly layered texture, impressive purity, and beautiful balance, this cuvee is haute couture in a glass. Although surprisingly approachable, it won't hit its adolescent stage for 8-10 years, and will last for 25-30 years thereafter. Bravo!
