Tasting Notes

This is as reserved and cool as the Reignots but more complex, refined and sophisticated still as it just exudes class and breed with a fantastically broad array of spicy and pure black fruit aromas where the reserve and spice components are also reflected by the minerally, serious and delicious medium full-bodied flavors brimming with sève and extract on the very firm finish supported by buried tannins and huge length that doesn't stop. This isn't quite as concentrated and powerful as the '05 version but it's more than a respectable successor and there is so much sap that it gives the impression of being much more approachable now than it actually is.

The 2006 La Romanée Grand Cru is a vintage that I have encountered four or five times now. It is a year when Louis-Michel really showed what he could do even in a challenging growing season. Consistent with my previous notes, it has retained that sumptuous and sensual bouquet, the crushed violets now even more conspicuous. The palate is gentle and satin-textured with a pixelated and disarmingly pure finish. Wonderful. Tasted blind at Maison de Colombier in Beaune.
