Chateau Negly La Falaise La Clape Rouge 2019  - First Bottle

Reviews

92-94 Jeb Dunnuck -
Impressive blackberry and raspberry fruits as well as peppery garrigue and assorted meaty, almost bloody notes emerge from the 2019 La Clape La Falaise. A rich, medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced and elegant red, it should drink nicely right out of the gate yet also evolve for 7-8 years, if not a decade.
91 Wine Spectator -
Complex, harmonious and fresh. This sleek and focused red shows a pure beam of wild currant and brambly fruit flanked with garrigue, Earl Grey tea, anise and graphite notes all bound by svelte tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Carignan. Drink now through 2029. 1,500 cases made, 150 cases imported.

Sustainable Farming Practices

We can’t stop drinking this. How does Negly do it? Must be that fantastic property, the genius-level winemaking (Negly has too many 95-100 point scores to count) from Claude Gros, to name a few things! Beautifully polished, fresh, zesty yet powerful with deep curranty fruit, spices, wild herbs and sweet oak (judiciously done) and just a touch of olive and mocha, too. SO GOOD - 60% syrah, 30% grenache, 10% mourvedre.

The Chateau was built in the 18th century and was originally named d'Anceley, and in 1807, the name changed to Negly. Many families have owned this historic estate over the centuries, but it wasn't until the arrival of Jean Paux-Rosset, who purchased Negly in 1992, that the wines produced from these old traditional vineyards began their elevation to premier level status.

We just received our tiny allocation and all we can say is – GO! Plenty of press to read up on here, just know you are getting beautifully polished and concentrated wine with fantastic levels of complexity for pretty much ANYTHING priced like this!

PAIRING IDEAS: Lamb chops. Plan for a day of cooking (2 hours, really) with this recipe. Garlic confit is simply amazing, you can use it over and over too. Classic complements to syrah-based red with the rosemary, too – delicious.

MUSIC SUGGESTIONS: We also saw Greta Van Fleet during Bottle Rock weekend, and let me tell you, they’re one of my new favorites! Blast any of their tunes - it's bound to eliminate those Sunday scaries!

About the Producer

The Chateau de la Negly is located in the Languedoc, overlooking the Mediterranean, in the exceptional terroir of La Clape. The original Negly vineyard spanned 123 acres on clay limestone soils which gives Negly its signature palate impact and broad shoulders. In 2006 they acquired the neighboring 62 acres on alluvial sand and sandstone soils which was replanted and now is farmed sustainably and by hand. Consultant Claude Gros has further refined the work in the cellar it's not a mystery why La Negly is the top of the class in Southern France.
