Eye: Red black with deep dark tints. Nose: Small black fruits, liquorice and roasted notes and oriental spices. Powerful and intense aromas. Palate: Powerful attack with important tannic structure. Rich and concentrated. Fully expressive of the terroir. Overall: Great ageing potential, structured and concentrated with a rare intensity of flavour and colour.

The most intense and opaque purple-colored effort is the 2006 La Landonne. More primordial than either the La Mouline or La Turque, it exhibits notes of asphalt, blackberries, charcoal, truffles, roasted meats and creme de cassis. Full-bodied as well as extraordinarily pure and rich, it is approachable, but will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and last 30-40 years.

This is packed for the vintage, with dark bittersweet chocolate and espresso leading the way for the core of dense fig paste, hoisin sauce and mulled blackberry fruit. The long, smoky finish lets charcoal and iron notes play out, with a very grippy finish. Best from 2012 through 2030.
