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. 93-95 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.
