"Stylish, with a chalky thread running from start to finish, offering red currant preserves, damson plum, red licorice and rooibois tea notes. Displays a typical chalky pine accent, though this stays a bit tauter and more sinewy on the finish than the other recent vintages. A wine where terroir manages to win out against a lean year.—Larcis Ducasse non-blind vertical (December 2012). Drink now through 2020. 2,915 cases made. –JM" (WS)

"Since 2002, this great terroir has been fully exploited by the dynamic duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Following the monumental 2005,a legend in the making, it is hard to get excited about the 2006, even though it is an outstanding effort. While more austere and not as concentrated as its predecessor, it is an impressive blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc displaying a deep, dark ruby color as well as a striking bouquet of powdered rocks/minerals, sweet cherry and plum-like fruit, and hints of Christmas fruitcake and spice box. It is an elegant, medium-bodied, moderately tannic, pure effort possessing outstanding density. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15-20 years." (WA)

"($71) Bright red-ruby. Soil-driven aromas of blueberry, licorice, minerals, dark chocolate and iron. Juicy, spicy and penetrating, with a lovely light touch to the flavors of black fruits, spices, mocha, minerals and flowers. An elegant, aromatic, very sexy wine with terrific energy and lift from calcaire I love the suave texture on display here. Finishes very long and perfumed, with firm but perfectly buffered tannins and lingering notes of red berries and minerals." (IWC)

"From almost 90% Merlot and the remainder Cabernet Franc, this delicious St. Emilion wine offers stone, licorice, black cherry, cocoa, coffee, smoke and plum scents. Medium/full bodied and not as lush as the wines made in subsequent vintages, this is still a nice Bordeaux wine that will drink well early. 90 points - Tasted Aug 2, 2011" (JL)

"This is very exciting with slightly exotic character of dark fruits, citrus and minerals. An almost orange peel undertone. Full body, with silky tannins and a delicious finish. Refined. It’s just starting to come around now." (JS)
