(ST93-95 points) Idiosyncratic nose combines spearmint, menthol, chalk, licorice and a whiff of blueberry. Rocky and powerful, with captivating saline and violet notes that reminded me of fleur de sel The wine's juicy minerality gives it precision and real force. Finishes with an almost tannic, peppery impression. I love this cooler style in the often-exotic 2006 vintage. From a steep, east-facing vineyard on white marl soil.

(WA92-93+ points) From an eastern exposure, the Prieur 2006 Corton-Charlemagne delivers lime, tangerine, herbs, and chalk dust on the nose; saturates the palate with chalk, salts, citrus oils, and resinous herbs; and finishes with impressive force, meaty, almost red wine-like depth, and impressive, implacable stoniness. This should be worth following for a decade or more, and even the very short term may well reveal further details, as well as dissipate a slightly leesy, lactic note that still clung to it when I last tasted. The gorgeously-scented, honeyed and yet adamantly stony 2005 displays similar complexity, concentration, and potential. - David Schildknecht

(BH90-93 points) The prior wines had relatively discreet wood influence though here it's more prominent as it frames green apple and white flower aromas that introduce big, powerful and impressively scaled flavors brimming with a pungent minerality on the moderately austere but fabulously long finish. This is both broad and deep and while it's on the forward side for a young CC, it will still need 5 to 7 years to see its majority.
