The weather conditions were a real roller coaster: rainy March followed by hot or very hot months, rainy and cool August, hot and rainy September ... The end of September and the beginning of October were very sunny and saved the harvest. Finally, those who have waited the most and selected their grains have done the best wine.
In Bordeaux, the Pomerol and Saint Emilion are silky, balanced, resulting from a merlot that reaches maturity more quickly. On the Medoc side the wines are at the time closed and austere but promised an excellent guard. Saint Julien are promising, Pauillac have a very beautiful complexity and the Pessac Léognan have beautiful finesse. The best wines of 2006 are : Château Mouton Rothschild 2006, Château Haut Brion 2006, the Château Margaux 2006, the Château Lafite Rothschild 2006. There are also the Château Montrose 2006 and Château Beychevelle 2006,
In Burgundy and Champagne, bad weather creates big differences. Quality will be at the price of a rigorous selection of grains by the hand of man but it results in very beautiful wines. In the Rhone valley, the vintage is certainly classic but qualitative. For the Burgundy red wines, the Domaine de la Romanée Conti 2006 is the reference. In the Rhône Valley, all the appellations are excellent.
