External Reviews for Mélanie Rouge Aoc Languedoc
Tiefe, dunkle Farbe, Duft nach kaltem Kaffee, Süssholz, rote Beeren, sehr frisch, feine und dichte Textur, erinnert an Leder, luxuriöser Wein. Kaum zu glauben, aber nicht im Holz gereift!
Vanel's 2004 Coteaux du Languedoc Melanie (named for his grandmother - each of these cuvees used to be labeled with the prefix 'Clos,' but apparently the authorities determined that this could not be taken literally) offers a fascinating nose of diverse flowers, Provencal herbs, honey, black tea and ripe black cherry. Soy, smoked meats, black raspberry and black cherry preserves, bitter chocolate, and sweet florality fill the mouth in a manner that suggests some Merlot from Pomerol in the mix. Refined in tannin, polished and evocatively floral and ripely-fruited in its finish, this deeply-satisfying testimony to Vanel's terroir, old vines, and dedication should (based on my experience with these wines as a former importer) improve for at least 3-5 years in bottle, and as such offers outstanding value.
