The modest, but enormously talented Alexandre Thienpont has produced a sublime 2006 VCC (as it is known) with a finesse and silkiness rarely found outside top Grand Cru Red Burgundy. As usual, this is no blockbuster but has a piercing intensity, alongside great balance and harmony. Its attractive, pure, perfumed nose is followed by round, but very fine, crisp, sweet, crushed raspberry fruit, silky tannins and a lovely lively creaminess. Only 3000 cases of this wine have been made so we suggest you get your hands on one toute de suite before they sell out. A magnificent Pomerol.
