2016 Château de la Negly "La Côte" La Clape (Previously $13)

SKU #1308921 89-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 La Clape La Cote has outstanding potential and is another beautifully concentrated red from this team that holds onto a sense of purity and elegance. Black cherries, currants, peppery spice and leather all flow to an inky colored, full-bodied and balanced 2016 that’s going to drink nicely for 4-5 years. I suspect it will be a terrific value. The blend is 40% Grenache and 30% each of Syrah and Carignan. (JD)  (4/2017)

K&L Notes

Chateau de la Negly represents the pinnacle of production in the La Clape region of Languedoc. Jeb Dunnuck of the Wine Advocate writes that the wines of Chateau de la Negly "are hard to find in the marketplace, but they're singular, world class efforts worth the extra effort to track down." We were excited when this producer approached us to begin a direct relationship with them. The "La Cote" is the workhorse wine that offers some of their best QPR. It is a GCS blend with Grenache making up the bulk at about 40% and the rest Carignan and Syrah. Vinified in a mix of stainless steel and concrete it is loaded with aromas of black cherry, black currants, Provencal herbs and olive tapenade. It has sweet fruit on the palate and a long supple finish. Don't miss what has become one of the new benchmarks of this region. (Keith Mabry, K&L Wine Merchants)

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.
