2013 Château de la Negly "La Porte du Ciel" La Clape (Previously $90)

SKU #1282464 95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Moving to the reds, the 2013 la Porte du Ciel is mind blowing stuff. Made from 100% Syrah and still aging in a combination of wooden tank and demi-muids, it offers up a smorgasbord of cassis, black currants, graphite, saline like minerality and licorice to go with a full-bodied, ultra-pure, layered and silky style on the palate. While it’s not for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors, this is still a decidedly elegant version of this cuvee. It should benefit from short term cellaring and have 15-20 years of longevity. (JD)  (4/2015)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
