Winemaker's Notes

Despite the naturally high alcohol contents, the fruit is fresh (citrus fruit; bush peaches) with good acidities. Intense but without being heavy, these 2006 wines look very promising.

Critical Acclaim

"Subtle touches of reduction and pain grillé frame a complex and layered nose of roasted nuts, peach, pear, anise and clove that introduces rich and very full flavors brimming with buckets of dry extract that confers a textured, indeed almost chewy character to the beautifully long and silky finish. This is not especially elegant but the depth and punch are impressive plus in the context of the vintage, this finishes quite dry."
92 Points

"(in tank) Brisk, slightly metallic aromas of lime, minerals and menthol. Juicy, sweet and intense; round and full but also showing more power than the Clos de la Barre. But then this has not yet been fined. There's nothing exotic or over the top about this '06. 90-91 points."
