The 2006 is a wine to
stockpile, especially for those in their
thirties and forties as it needs another
decade to reach maturity, after which
it should keep for 30+ years. This vineyard,
just south of Mouton Rothschild,
has produced an opaque bluish/
purple-colored 2006 with an extraordinarily
pure nose of graphite,
charcoal, sweet creme de cassis, and
a hint of scorched earth. Incredible
concentration, stunning richness, and
a 60-second finish result in a wine
that transcends the vintage as well
as this estate’s 1855 classification.
This enormously endowed, modern day
classic is a legend in the making.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050+.
