2015 Château de la Negly "Les Clos des Truffieres" Languedoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1443128 97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Schedule to be bottled shortly after this tasting, the 2015 Clos Des Truffiers will unquestionably be one of the top 1-2 wines in the vintage from the region, if not the entire southern part of France. White truffles, olive tapenade, cured meats, and a huge core of sweet fruit flow to a full-bodied, concentrated, yet elegant, silky version of this cuvée. It's showing even more elegance than I remember from when I tasted it last year, and is going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.  (7/2018)

96-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Similar in style to the 2011, the 2015 Languedoc Clos des Truffières is as always 100% Syrah from a vineyard near Pézenas. Scheduled to be bottled in February or March of 2017, it has sensational notes of blackcurrants, cassis, lead pencil and graphite, with more obvious structure and minerality than the Porte du Ciel. It’s a gorgeous wine that should unquestionably be one of the wines of the vintage. (JD)  (4/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Bright deep crimson. Very rich and heady with a hint of black olives. Lifted nose. Really textured. Still quite chewy on the end. 16.5++/20 points. (JR)  (11/2018)

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.
