Winemaker Notes

Known as the "Winemaker's Vintage" for its challenging weather, our 2006 was certainly the year where experience made all the difference! Despite a low yield, the 2006 certainly has the potential to be among the 5-6 best vintages of the last 20 years. There is an ideal balance between freshness-vivacity and power-concentration.

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The refuge of the Lur Saluces family after selling their beloved Yquem, this is an Yquem-like wine that sells for a fraction of the price fetched for the most famous wine of the region. Rich, honeyed citrus along with creme brulee, vanillin, sweet caramelized pineapple and citrus notes are followed by a wine with an unctuously thick, viscous, full-bodied mouthfeel, but with good enough acidity to balance out the wine's enormous weight, richness, and concentration. This should be a 30+ year wine when it is bottled this year. Range: 94-96

95 Points - Wine Spectator

This is really attention-getting, with a seamless toasted coconut note weaving through lush tarte tartine, creamed apricot and heather flavors. As exotic as the flavors are, they are tightly focused and framed by a mouthwatering date note, with a long, mouthwatering finish.

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

A firm, densely structured wine, with the sweetness turned as much into richness. The flavors are of Seville orange zest, the richness coming from honey and almonds, balanced with dry botrytis. An impressive wine that needs time for aging.
