International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($250) Full ruby. Vibrant aromas of crushed blueberry and bitter chocolate are further brightened by a violet quality. Dense, sweet and lush, with terrific depth and freshness to its dark fruit, mineral and violet flavors. This is really creamy-rich for the vintage. Finishes with smooth, chocolatey tannins and outstanding palate-saturating length. It's hard to imagine how Hubert de Bouard managed to get such a deep, layered middle palate without any sign of overextracted tannins or heaviness, but he has managed this neat trick.

Magnum. 42% Cabernet Franc, 58% Merlot. Bright crimson still. A strong, attractive mineral note on the nose. Very unctuous texture, almost heavy in the mouth! Quite a decadent style of wine. Lightly drying tannins on the finish. Long and warming. All stops are pulled out on this wine but it is not too much.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 181

A spectacular effort (what's new?), this brilliant offering from proprietor Hubert de Bouard is another classic. A blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of creosote, blueberry pie, espresso roast, blackberries, and graphite. Extremely full-bodied and stunningly rich with a multi-layered texture, sweet tannin, and a 45-second finish, this exceptional 2006 is one of the great wines of St.-Emilion.

This has a gorgeous nose of black licorice, black cherry and sage. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a very long finish. There's beautiful texture for the vintage. Enjoy the fruit and richness.

Medium deep ruby purple, lighter than 2004. A rather closed nose. High tannin due to age. A bigger and stronger wine than 2004. Hint of toffee behind the black fruits. Stronger aftertaste than 2004, medium to long. I think the 2004 vintage has bigger potential than this one and 2006 will offer a more recent pleasure.
