Tasting Notes

"There will only be around 1,800 bottles of it. In bottle for two weeks when I tasted it, the 2008 Cotes du Roussillon Clos del Rey - as usual for this cuvee - is around three-quarters Carignan (the balance Grenache) and matured 60% in tank; the rest in new barriques. Rosemary, lavender, and otherwise resinous garrigue herbs ally themselves with ripe blackberry, peat, and saliva-inducing mineral salts on a dense, oily-textured palate underlain with fine, firm tannins, leading to a genuinely exhilarating finish, with sappy, mouthwatering, positively vibratory length that involves tactile and active impingement of stony and somehow almost crystalline mineral character."

92-93 points - David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate, June 2011
