($600) Good medium red. Reticent, deeply pitched but pure aromas of raspberry and mocha. Broad and ripe but tight and backward today, and not showing quite the lift or the freshness of fruit of the Echezeaux. With its saline earth tones, this is more savory than sweet. Finishes with firm, youthfully tough tannins. This was my least favorite 2006 here in the context of the cru, but I suspect this is in a restrained stage today. Villaine noted that although the average age of vines here is still more than 40, there's a good percentage of 15-to-20-year-old vines.
