2006 Clos del Rey "Clos del Rey" Languedoc-Roussillon

SKU #1059453 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Representing a small barrel-selection (around half new oak) from the material that would otherwise have become Mas del Rey, the 2006 Cotes du Roussillon Clos del Rey displays vividly bright black fruits; a dense, sappy, yet lively palate impression, and a salty, smoky, stony, and stunningly intense finish that manages to be both gripping and infectiously juicy. This needs time in the air to express itself, and as it opens up, the profundity of its fruit and illusive minerality; a bitter sweet, iris-like floral dimension; and above all the wine’s lift and elegance become dramatically evident. There is not an ounce of fat or a touch of cosmetics on this handsome, taut body. Feel free to follow its evolution for a decade at least. (Imagine what the 2007 might be like!) (DS)  (6/2009)

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
