($400) Aromas of white peach and crushed stone. Sweet, dense and powerful, with strong minerality giving it a strong sappy quality. The ripeness here is almost exotic, and yet this very sweet, long wine comes off as young today. I'd wait four years. Interestingly, winemaker Philippe Prost believes that the '06s are both riper and more primary than the saline, creamy '05s, and that they need a bit more time in bottle than the earlier set of wines.

Again perfumed, hints of white flowers and citrus. Then a different animal on the palate. Powerful and evident oak but lovely harmony already between oak and fruit. (JH)
