The spectacular 1998 Coteaux du Languedoc La Porte du Ciel was fashioned entirely from Syrah harvested at 14 hectoliters per hectare. Each bunch was destemmed by hand and crushed by foot. The wine's alcoholic fermentation lasted 40 days, after which it was placed in new Seguin-Moreau barrels. In short, this wine was produced in an uncompromising manner.||Its awesomely elegant and complex nose is composed of cassis liqueur and candied red raspberries. On the palate, it is massive, powerful, hugely intense, yet refined. Full-bodied, crammed with sur-maturite-laced red and black fruit flavors, this benchmark-setting Languedoc combines the embracing warmth often associated with the wines of this region with the nobility and class generally attributed to more highly touted viticultural areas. Readers who adore Syrah or cherish profound wine should not miss this one. Projected maturity: 2002-2012. Wine Advocate.February, 2000
