The 2006 Beaune “Grèves” from the Lafarge family is also outstanding, as it offers up a classy and cool aromatic and flavor profile. The bouquet is excellent, as it delivers a reserved mélange of cherries, red plums, vinesmoke, coffee beans, and a racy base of minerality. On the palate the wine is fullish, reserved and very transparent down to the soil, with lovely nervosité and a bit or ripe tannin to resolve on the long finish. Fine, fine juice. (Drink between 2016-2040).
Pungent smokiness and smoked meat salinity mingle with tart rhubarb and cherry in the Lafarge 2006 Beaune Greves. At once bright and stony; firm and full of mineral and animal complexity; this finishes with astonishing grip, as if the deep roots of these 80 year old vines were clinging to your palate. Forget the charm that characterizes so many 2006s: this could only be called youthfully seductive if your idea of seduction involves whips and leather. I would plan to give it at least 4-5 years in the cellar and then anticipate at least an equal period of stimulating satisfaction. (DS)
A very subtle hint of wood frames earth suffused red pinot fruit and plum aromas with a slight hint of crushed leaf that lead to more serious and more somber medium-bodied flavors brimming with dry extract on the impressively deep and moderately austere finish. There is simply another dimension here relative to the Aigrots with better integration of the underlying structure.
