91 points "Clavel’s 2007 Coteaux du Languedoc La Mejanelle La Copa Santa is the latest in a series of Syrah vinified in (partly new) barrels (with small amounts of Grenache and Mourvedre) that began in 1992. He picks very ripe, applies an extended cold soak, and backs off quickly and decisively on extraction once the fermenting wine has acquired significant alcohol. Vivid dark chocolate, brown spice, licorice and fresh black cherry and purple plum mark the nose and palate, with suggestions of roasted meats emerging as the wine opens. Admirably concentrated and youthfully firmly-textured, it finishes with low-toned richness and spicy persistence, while preserving a juicy fresh fruit character, and should be worthy of 8-10 years’ cellaring. Robert Parker - #183 July 2009." Best 2014-2020
