Owned by Bordeaux empire builder Bernard Magrez this estate has been on fire ... qualitatively speaking ... since 2001. The 2006 another top-notch effort underwent two de-leafings (one in early summer and one a few months later) and two crop-thinnings which explain the tiny yields. There is also a severe triage after the wine is made. A final blend of 60% Merlot 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot has resulted in a wine with a lovely perfume of sweet black currants truffles incense and smoke. With sweet but noticeable tannin medium to full body brilliant concentration and purity as well as terrific precision and style this stunning effort is unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.
