2013 Domaine Clavel La Mejanelle Copa Santa
Producer: Domaine Clavel
Region: Languedoc-Rousillon, France
Varietal: 83% Syrah 17% Grenache
Descending from a family that worked the vineyard since 1640, Claire Clavel Winemaker strives every day to continue the story of several generations.
The Wine Advocate writes, “The inky, ruby-colored 2013 Languedoc La Mejanelle Copa Santa is a jaw dropper that’s loaded with rich, pure, layered notions of black raspberries, crushed violets and damp herbs. Coming from a mix of 83% Syrah and 17% Grenache, completely destemmed and aged 15 months in mostly foudre (23% in one- to five-year-old barrels), this medium to full-bodied beauty has good concentration, fine tannin, and an overriding sense of purity and elegance. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years. 91/100.”
Our team notes that the Languedoc has consistently produced some of the best values in the store the past couple of years and most of the wines are made in a very natural style.
