Château Mouton Rothschild 2006

The best first growth of the year? I have always believed so, right out of the Primeurs. Ruby, but with a garnet rim (much less impenetrable colour-wise than the 2005), with brightly floral strawberry and red cherry nuances along with savory underbrush and a hint of cèpes. Very suave, long and polished.
