LA NÉGRETTE: A GRAPE FOUND NOWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD

A unique typicity with black fruit, violet and spicy aromas from our native grape – the Négrette  grown on AOC vineyards in our chateau estate near Toulouse in France. Elegant, gourmand, fleshy wines for immediate drinking and powerful, rich, full-bodied, well-balanced wines for laying down. Some of our wines which have been oak-aged will have supple tannins and beautiful complex aromas.

The wine of Toulouse!

Our vineyards are located at the entrance to Toulouse, on the sandy loam and clay soil of the old terraces of the river Tarn which offers good heat retention. Coupled with a favourable
climate – over 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, fairly cool nights and little but regular rainfall – this is perfect terroir for producing red and rosé Négrette-based wines with a fascinating aromatic
intensity… a rare treat for the senses.
Because we are among the smallest and youngest of France’s appellations, we can still offer some great opportunities for you to introduce our unique wines to the general public
