Another sleeper of the vintage, La Dauphine's 2006 possesses a deep ruby/purple color, a chocolaty cassis character, medium body, sweet tannin, and surprising levels of fruit as well as depth. The new owners continue to elevate this beautiful estate to higher and higher quality levels. P.S. This is the first vintage to include what used to be a separate estate, Canon de Brem, which no longer exists.
