Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The Negly 2008 Coteaux du Languedoc La Clape La Falaise represents half Syrah; 35% Mourvedre; and, for the first time in this cuvee, some Carignan from the one remaining old vines block on the property. It was a long road for us to find the route to complexity and balance, remarks Didier Lacreu about the thinking that went into recent La Falaise blends, and I am happy to note that the virtues of Carignan were affirmed. Blond tobacco, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of tomato foliage mingle with ripe blackberry and cassis in a slightly sweetsour yet impressively persistent melange. This has real thickness yet retains vivacity; a saline suffusion stimulates the salivary glands; and high alcohol doesn't interfere with the flavors although I found my lips slightly numb afterward. I suspect it will be best enjoyed over the next 34 years."
