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.

The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
