The successful outcome of the 2006 vintage would not have been possible without the efforts of the viticulturists. The work throughout the year had a determining factor at the harvest, particularly with the good quality of the Pinots Noirs.
Our reds are showing excellent color and pleasant flesh. The malolactic fermentation has perfectly revealed their purity and aromatic expression. They also have good structure with present, though supple tannins and great intensity. Their softness makes of them a well balanced and enjoyable vintage.
"Good dark red. Hints of smoke and licorice on the rather laid-back but wild nose. Round, rich and deep, showing more weight but less early sex appeal than the Suchots. Best today on the lush, expanding back end, which features roast coffee and underbrush nuances and suggestions of very ripe fruit. This is still a baby. Prost notes that the berries here are always very ripe, but that the Suchots fruit comes in with firmer skins and normally makes a fresher style of wine. The Malconsorts, he says, shows deeper earth tones."
