The 2018 Chateau e la Negly la Clape la Cote, a blend of Rhone grapes from the Languedoc, is the perfect red wine for summer sipping. Bright red fruit, silky tannins, enough weight to make it interesting without being heavy, it is best served slightly chilled (say 60 degrees). It is just so delicious and unpretentious. Perfect for dinner on the patio or a picnic or with cold roast chicken or even chicken salad.
And The Wine Advocate agrees with us, rating it 91 points, saying: "The 2018 La Clape La Cote is loaded with sexy raspberry fruit, spiced up with hints of green peppercorn, pomegranate and orange zest. A tank-aged blend of Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, it's medium-bodied and very drinkable despite weighing in at 14.5% alcohol. The tannins are ripe and silky, adding just the right amount of texture to this fluid, easy-drinking red. Drink it over the next few years. Drink now through 2013."
