Tasted assembled from tank -- and due to have been bottled in two lots, one in December and one in March -- the Montcalmes red 2006 Coteaux du Languedoc is made up of around 60% Syrah, with the balance split evenly between Grenache and Mourvedre, and split roughly 70:30 between chalk and primarily cobbled soils. This displays seductively ripe and spice-tinged black raspberry, plum and cherry, along with mint chocolate and a hint of resin. While lacking the high-toned complexity and vivacity exhibited by the components of 2007 from cask, it exhibits enveloping richness, along with marvelous creaminess of texture. Suggestions of rosemary, cherry pit, dark chocolate, and toasted praline offer attractively bitter counterpoint, and for all of its caressing texture, this finishes with real grip. I suspect this will be worth following for at least 6-8 years. (DS)
Very pretty, pure and polished, the 2006 Domaine de Montcalmes Coteaux du Languedoc is a blend of 70% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 15% Grenache and exhibits stunning aromatics of blackberry, flowers, meat, lavender and subtle graphite. Medium bodied, this baby is pure silky in the mouth with exceptional balance, ripe fruit and a long, smooth finish rounded out by ultra fine tannins.
