95 Points - Stuart McCloskey
Overseen by the dynamic duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt, the 2006, a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon turned out to be one of the top wines of the vintage. A power house which requires at least 4-6 hour of decanting but then unveils aromas of pen ink, minerals, camphor and a touch of liquorice. The palate is equally as explosive with sweet dark fruit, mulberry and plum. Utterly thrilling.
