Château la Négly is located in the Languedoc, on the banks of the Étang de Pissévache on the foothills of the La Clape Massif. 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 tide's edge!) ensures a great variety in style and strength, but there is one characteristic that unites all wines: great precision and a strong degree of minerality. The quality of Négly has not gone unnoticed by Parker: he has repeatedly given high ratings (up to 99 points) to various Négly wines!

The La Négly La Falaise Rouge is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre coming from a vineyard from the famous Appelation La Clape literally located on the high tide line of the sea. The wine is fermented and matured in barriques of (partly) French oak. In the glass the wine has an intense ruby red color. In the nose aromas of blackberries, cassis, coffee, chocolate and black olives. The taste is full and powerful, very concentrated with a very long, soft aftertaste.

About the La Clape Appellation

As the name indicates, this appellation is a specified cru of the Languedoc designation (La Clape). The special limestone height is located southeast of the city of Narbonne. In Roman times it was l'Insula Laci, or Lykia; an island that drifted meters from the mainland. It boasts an incredible variety of producers whose masterful eccentricity gives the individuality of the coastal massif. The area's red wines typically develop a distinctive mineral maritime character beneath the jammy fruit nose. Red wines also have an imposing tannin structure and a full body thanks to the ubiquity of Grenache and Syrah, yet the wine remains well balanced with a round freshness. It is one of the few areas where the crisp, aromatic ancestral Bourboulenc variety is still grown. The grape must make up at least 30% of all regional white wine, with other varieties such as Clairette, Grenache, Marsanne and Vermentino making up the rest. Whites here have a very characteristic iodine character that can be traced back to the omnipresence of the sea air.

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 family has been making wine for years, but in recent years this has been characterized by an extreme growth in quality. The great diversity of soils, difference in height and location (up to ten meters from the tidal edge!), ensures a great variety in style and power, but there is one characteristic that connects all wines: great precision and a strong degree of minerality. The quality of Négly has not gone unnoticed by Parker either: he has repeatedly awarded high (up to 99 points) ratings to various wines from Négly!
