Pungent smokiness and smoked meat salinity mingle with tart rhubarb and cherry in the Lafarge 2006 Beaune Greves. At once bright and stony; firm and full of mineral and animal complexity; this finishes with astonishing grip, as if the deep roots of these 80 year old vines were clinging to your palate. Forget the charm that characterizes so many 2006s: this could only be called youthfully seductive if your idea of seduction involves whips and leather. I would plan to give it at least 4-5 years in the cellar and then anticipate at least an equal period of stimulating satisfaction. Dec 2009, www.robertparker.com
