K&L Notes

95+ points Robert Parker Wine Advocate: "The 2006 is a wine to stockpile, especially for those in their 30s and 40s as it needs another decade to reach maturity, after which it should keep for 30+ years. This vineyard, just south of Mouton Rothschild, has produced an opaque bluish/purple-colored 2006 with an extraordinarily pure nose of graphite, charcoal, sweet creme de cassis, and a hint of scorched earth. Incredible concentration, stunning richness, and a 60-second finish result in a wine that transcends the vintage as well as this estate’s 1855 classification. This enormously endowed, modern day classic is a legend in the making. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050+." (02/2009)

    Drinking beautifully now but with a long life ahead, the '06 is currently a dark and chewy wine with a dense mid-palate and a firm, dry finish. Lively aromas of violets and black fruits are poised and refined yet the body is round and meaty with substantial tannins and a persistent finish. A huge success for the vintage.
