Grand Vintage Collection 2006

tasting notes


Chardonnay: 42%. Pinot Noir: 39%. Meunier: 19%. The Chardonnay grapes, which were the ripest and healthiest, are in the majority, while the proportion of Meunier, which was less ripe and more fragile at the end of the harvest, is lower than in previous vintages. Pinot Noir completes the blend.

Bright gold color, with green hues

A smoky, full-bodied bouquet

A black and spicy bouquet

After 15 years of ageing on yeast lees, the reductive ripeness is well developed, with dry, grey notes of smoke and toast. Initial notes of flint and pepper remain. On aeration, the fruit reveals itself. The original juicy, yellow fruit (peach, mango), has become darker and candied, and is now reminiscent of dates or figs.

A long, full-bodied palate

On the palate, the attack is generous and supple, and the wine unfolds like an enveloping sphere. The prolonged ageing on yeast lees has lengthened the initial matter, and the finish lingers with a concentrated, deliciously bitter sensation of candied lemon.
