    (just three barrels; includes some Clos de Beze) Deep red. Superripe aromas of cherry, rose petal and caramel. Silky-sweet and a bit high-toned, with a sappy spice character to the superripe, intense red fruit flavors. This really saturates the palate and yet it comes across as a bit stunted today, even youthfully aggressive. Finishes silky and suave, though.

    The Laurent 2006 Chambertin Vieilles Vignes - representing three barrels from two growers, and incorporating some fruit from Clos de Beze - smells of rose petals, cherry jam, and cocoa powder. Sweet, almost over-ripe fruit meets an astringent layer of tannin on the palate, and these tannins - along with a tactile sense of brown spices - make for a finish of grip and sizzle but not much fluidity or charm. It could be - as Laurent suggests - that this wine is simply slow to recover from bottling compared with most of his 2006s.
