I thought this bottle was reflective both of the 2006 vintage as well as the Charvin style. Light garrigue on the Nose and Palate. Red-fruited, with high acidity and just a little tannin on the palate. Not a "big gloppy" CdP: rather, this had medium concentration of fruit and also a nimbleness that wines from this appellation generally fail to achieve. Clean (no brett). Open/accessible. A pleasurable wine. Very good, or low-level excellent (gut impression score: 89 - 92).
