($362) Good deep red. Wonderfully pure, complex nose offers black cherry, minerals, red licorice and flowers, with an almost liqueur-like sweetness. Less expressive in the mouth but silky and suave in texture and considerably sweeter than the Clos de Beze, with compelling density and intensity of flavor. The almost liqueur-like red fruit quality carries through on the palate. The wine's sappiness gives it a weightless quality. The longest of these 2006s by far, finishing with superb grip and energy.

Slightly sweeter than the wine before it but with real layers and oaked strawberry-jam appeal. A certain laciness. Solid effort. Not as reverberant on the finish as the Rossignol-Trapet before it but worthy.
