(from a magnum opened at the Domaine). A highly expressive, dense and notably spicy black berry liqueur-infused nose that is really quite densely fruited. There is a fine sense of concentration to the delicious, serious and palate staining medium full-bodied flavors that possess plenty of sap that completely buffer the now relatively supple tannins on the gorgeously long finish. Somewhat surprisingly for a magnum from 2006 this is relativley supple and while the nose is still completely primary, this could be drunk now with ample pleasure.
Good deep, dark red. Sexy aromas of musky red raspberry, smoke, minerals and earth; cooler than the 2007. Suave on entry, then quite tight in the middle, with a fine grain to the brisk red fruit flavors. Very bright, perfumed wine with the energy of the vintage's best examples. Finishes with terrific lift. At once thoroughly ripe and aristocratically cool and laid-back. Two-thirds of these vines are planted on pale, calcaire-rich soil. (ST)
