30% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre
Château de La Negly is situated on the prime chalky terroir of La Clape in the Languedoc, in sight of the Mediterrnean, whose cooling breezes moderate the maturation. Aromas of blackberry and cassis with hints of fruit skin on the palate.
"Château de la Négly may be the Languedoc-Roussillon's finest estate. The brilliant oenologist Claude Gros oversees the winemaking, and everything is done with incredible attention to detail, aiming for world class wines of great individuality and quality."
Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…
90-92/100 Jeb Dunnuck, July 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"From an early, hot vintage, the 2017 Languedoc La Cote is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan brought up mostly in tank. It got a few "wows" in the notes and has a concentrated, ripe, sexy style as well as classic darker fruits and ample background meatiness. Offering remarkable ripeness, sweet tannins, and terrific mid-palate density, this going to be a little gem of a wine."
92/100 Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, May 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 La Cote is a blend of Carignan, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, aged entirely in wooden vats. Like all the red offerings from Negly, it's full-bodied, but what distinguishes La Côte (at least in 2017) is the unique, floral-spicy nose and red-fruited flavors. Ripe, supple tannins buttress exotic notes of raspberries, stone fruit, orange zest, cardamom and cumin. Savory and fine, it looks to be a terrific effort for near-term consumption."
