(from a .60 ha parcel) A restrained and slightly somber nose introduces cool and refined flavors that are rich and extremely earthy, indeed more so than usual with good mid-palate density and fine precision on the delicious, textured and wonderfully long finish where I really like the depth this offers. This seems to have lost any sense of hail-induced dryness and has become quite a serious Chapelle with ample backend minerality.

Deep, saturated ruby-red. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of wild blackberry, black cherry and smoke. This, too, is a sweet, superripe fruit bomb, albeit in a rather powerful style and with a firm edge. Ponsot say it's the wine's tannins that give the impression of volatile acidity. Extremely rich for 2006: it will be interesting to follow this.
