Grown in fact in the Mazoyeres, the Ligniers' 3 barrels worth of 2006 Charmes-Chambertin leads with pure, bright fresh and distilled essence of cherry. Chartreuse-like suggestions of herbal and floral distillates add to the aromatic allure. A bittersweet concentration of cherry, herbs, and cherry pits, along with suggestions of meat stock fill-out a finely-tannic palate, and this finishes with impressive length and transparency of pure fruit to carnal and chalky mineral nuances. I suspect that this refined and buoyant 2006 will be worth following for at least a dozen years. Dec 2009, www.robertparker.com
