This is definitely the more amped up version of our Negly offerings. Full and rich with lots of glycerin. When you first open this wine it is dense with fruit. As it opens though the characteristics of the Carignan come forward and add a lot of spice and nuance to the wine. This is a wine I would like to drink while I spit-roast an animal and finish when I sit down and devour a large hunk of its flesh.

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.
