This balanced and deeply complex 100% Syrah micro-cuvée is very well made. It can be drunk young or after five years in the cellar More info
This cuvée is made predominantly from Syrah, supplemented with some Grenache. Both varieties are cultivated on a complex terrain of sand, clay and limestone and vinified for a long time. Élevage, in barriques, takes two years and barriques are also used for fermentation. This wine is designed to be kept for a good 15 years, it is full of character and pairs perfectly with roast poultry. It flawlessly combines dark fruit aromas, minerality and empyreumatic notes (coffee, wood) from its time in barrels. Its texture on the palate is silky, velvety, full of flavour, and generous.
The domain underwent a complete transformation in the 1990s. That was when the Paux-Rosset family bought Château La Négly and decided to change grape varieties to improve quality, with the introduction of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Sustainable cultivation methods are painstakingly employed: debudding, leaf thinning, manual harvesting, double sorting on tables and limited yields. Château de la Négly offers a series of very flavoursome wines produced under the Languedoc-la-Clape AOC. Jean Paux-Rosset has also produced three excellent cuvées: Porte du Ciel, Clos des Truffiers and Ancély. The first two are produced from Syrah, and the last features Mourvèdre. These are highly distinguished wines.
