Château la Négly is located in the Languedoc, on the banks of the Étang de Pissévache on the foothills of the Massif of La Clape. Négly is owned by the Paux-Rosset family, and daughter Marion makes the wine, assisted by oenologist Claude Gros. The great diversity of soils, height difference and location (up to ten meters from the high tide!), allows for a great variety in style and strength, but there is one characteristic that connects all wines: great precision and a high degree of minerality. The quality of Négly has also not gone unnoticed by Parker: he repeatedly gave high (up to 99 points) ratings to various Négly wines!

The La Négly Clos des Truffiers is an absolute top wine from Languedoc based on Syrah (95%) and Grenache (5%). The ultimate proof that a beautiful terroir is hidden in this region. It is the top model of Château la Négly and this wine always scores extra high with the various wine journalists and has already received the magical 100 out of 100 from Robert Parker. The wine is only released in the absolute top years and the 2017 is the successor of the 2015 which has received 99/100 points

The grapes come from vineyards of more than 50 years old and stay in the barrels and cellars for around 3 years before a very limited number of bottles come to the Netherlands (only around 2000 bottles are made of this wine and all bottles are therefore also numbered ). In the glass, the Clos des Truffiers has an intense purple-red color with intense aromas in the nose of black raspberries, blackberries in combination with shades of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, toasted wood in a full, decadent style. In the mouth, velvety attack in the mouth that caresses the pallet. The tannins show a high quality. A wine that constantly evolves on the palate. Compared to the La Porte du Ciel (also a Syrah driven wine) wine is more rounded and sexy and is more exuberant.
