L'As Coteaux du Languedoc Mas Conscience Bottle 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Purity and power are the keys in this Coteaux du Languedoc red; the Syrah lends<br/>the former, with vibrant red berried fruit and a strand of minerality, which<br/>juxtaposes notes of <em>garrigue</em> and aniseed. The Grenache lends the<br/>warmth, and rounded palate profile; it is the tension between the linear and<br/>the more rounded notes which provide the fascination here; for full and<br/>eloquent expression the wine needs contact with the air. After the concentrated<br/>and powerful 2005, the 2006 plays more on the elegance and linearity; the<br/>distinctive violet perfume and dark fruit intensity still evidenced<br/>however.
