A neighbor to Chateau Negly in the La Clape AOC (that’s a good neighbor to have), the not-yet bottled 2013 La Clape comes from a mix of limestone and clay soils, and is comprised of Syrah and Grenache that was completely destemmed and aged mostly in concrete tanks. Slightly closed aromatically, it nevertheless gives up quality notes of dark fruits and toasty oak (which seems odd given its aging mostly in tank), to go with a medium to full-bodied, supple, polished, elegant style on the palate. The tannin quality is first rate; it has good overall freshness and a great finish. It’s well worth following for at least 7-8 years.
