Chateau de la Negly Cuvee l'Ancely Coteaux du Languedoc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): Bay laurel, sandalwood, and plum preserves in the nose of the 2006 Coteaux du Languedoc La Clape L-Ancely mingle on the palate - in archetypal Mourvedre fashion - with dark chocolate, beef blood, and sea water... the intensity of these flavors put this wine practically beyond imagination! Is this elegant or refined? No. If Mourvedre is inherently animal, this is a real beast. But it displays an elemental power that is irresistible, without becoming overbearing, and phenomenally rich ripeness and plush texture, without its 15.6% alcohol engendering heat or roughness in its throat-coating finish. Certainly it will be worth following for at least 5-7 years, and I would not be surprised to find it holding up well for a decade. (Jun 2009)
