Chateau de Grammont Coteaux du Languedoc la Mejanelle 1993

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for a mere six pounds from a wine merchant in Sussex who I beleive,obtained it from a house clearance.The Coteaux du Languedoc is a very large area which got AOC status in the 1980's and the permitted grape varieties are syrah, grenache, mourverde ,carignan and cinsault although the name of the AOC is now simply Languedoc.La Mejanelle is a small commune within this larger area lying between the town of Montpellier and the sea I have not been able to find out a lot about Chateau de Grammont apart from the fact that the actual building is on the outskirts of Montpellier and the bottle bears the name of Pierre Clavel a well known winemaker of the area.I drank my bottle over the last couple of days and I have to say that I enjoyed it.Ther was fruit there [think plums although not a very intense fruit and it was soft,mellow and easy drinking.I certainly did not think that it was past it but the fact that the cork was sodden with wine and that there was a sediment stain on the inside of one side of the bottle indicate proper cellaring

My goal, Excellence in what I produce in all humility, with sincerity - the simplest expression of my terroir. My hope, That the bottles leaving my cellar to reach connoisseurs throughout the world will contribute to exchanges, pleasure, satisfactions, sensations and, why not? sensuality. I imagine Their active presence on family tables, on those of crowded restaurants, or else in the intimacy of a couple. I would like My wine to be a source of conviviality, of narrowing the gap between different destinations, of languages, of situations, of different frames of mind and of different moments. I am aware That the search for excellence is difficult. I am worried that I am still far from attaining it, there are so many external elements beyond my control, beyond that of the men and women around me. Read less
