Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Chateau de la Negly La Clape La Brise Marine Blanc is a brilliant color. The nose pairs aromas of exotic fruits and white peach with notes of fresh almond. The lively palate is powerful and full bodied. A mineral note accentuates its complexity. Ideal served chilled with a Mediterranean tuna tartare.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A 50-50 blend of Bourboulenc (from 50-year-old vines) and Roussanne, the 2018 La Clape La Brise Marine Blanc is a fine effort. Understated aromas of melon and lime give way to a vibrant, medium-bodied palate that's fresh and electric on the long finish, with bright acidity and briny notes coming together in a tongue-tingling finale.

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 La Clape Brise Marine Blanc is equal parts Bourboulenc and Roussanne that was brought up all in tank. It has vibrant notes of white flowers, salty citrus, and a kiss of minerality to go with a clean, beautifully balanced, refreshing style on the palate. It’s great today, but I suspect it will keep for 4-5 years, if not longer.

Chateau de la Negly, France
Chateau de la Negly farms 50ha of estate vines that are situated in the Languedoc village of Fleury, 20km from Narbonne, in the heart of the La Clape AOP. During the Gallo-Roman era, the hills of La Clape were an island in the Mediterranean until the Aude River reconnected it to the mainland with substantial alluvial deposits. The unique soils of this AOP are a mixture of sandy loam and decomposing sandstone that is silty and rough with rocks and clay. The estate's close proximity to the water makes for a longer growing season with larger diurnal temperature shifts than vineyards further inland. This, coupled with the effects of the Tramontane wind, strong and dry from the North, allows Chateau de la Negly to make extremely rich and powerful wines that maintain great freshness and elegance.

Records show that this property existed as far back as 178AD under the name Nerly. The Chateau was built in the 18th century and was originally named d'Anceley; 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.

Today, wines from Chateau de la Negly are held as benchmarks of the Languedoc's potential, achieved through a series of replanting of vineyards, more organic farming practices and a strict attention to cleanliness and quality control. Every bunch of grapes is handpicked and placed into small 8kg crates. If they are de-stemmed, as they are for all the top wines, the grapes travel slowly along a conveyor table where 12 people remove everything but the perfectly ripe and intact berries. Whites are allowed to chill in a cold room for up to 4 days before pressing. The three flagship wines from this Estate (L'Anceley, Port du Ciel and Clos des Truffiers) are parcel selections of very old Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache that yield tiny harvests of around 10-15 hL/ha.

Essentially a mountain on France’s Mediterranean coast, La Clape's vineyards vary in elevation by as much as nearly 1,000 feet. This tiny region also boasts some of France’s highest total hours of sunshine and produces aromatic whites from the Bourboulenc variety as well as full-bodied red blends from the usual Rhône suspects.

Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
