A white Negly to add to our collection here at JN Wine. Chateau de la Négly is located in the stunningly beautiful La Clape region, which lies between Narbonne and the Mediterranean Sea, the estate consists of a handful of vineyards, all of which lie within sight of the sea. While all of their wines lean towards the full-bodied, decadent end of the spectrum, they possess fabulous, singular bouquets as well as balanced, seamless and even elegant profiles on the palate.
La Brise Marine is a superb and unusual white blend. It is made up of 60% Roussanne, 40% Bourboulenc. The Bourboulenc element is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and aged on its fine lees for six months, whilst the Roussanne is vinified in barrique. This results in a wine with a vibrant colour. On the nose there are aromas of exotic fruit, mango, and white peach with notes of fresh almond. The palate is powerful and generous, with an exquisite note of minerality on the finish which just enhances its complexity. Serve well chilled, 8-10°C with a Mediterranean tuna tatar. You’ll be transported to the South of France in no time!
