Potentially the wine of the vintage, proprietor Denis Durantou has fashioned a profound 2006 of great intensity and complexity. Its intense purple hue is accompanied by a glorious nose of melted red and black fruits, spring flowers, truffles, and spice. With massive concentration as well as intensity, but no hard edges, it is a tour de force in winemaking. Multilayered, with incredibly texture and purity as well as a finish that lasts over 60 seconds, this brilliant Pomerol should be accessible in 3-4 years, and last for three decades or more. Bravo!
