Absolue Negrette, Château Laurou, Fronton
Je ne Négrette rien
Tastes like: Blackberry. Spice. Violet. Liquorice. Savoury. Cloves. Earthy. Supple tannins. Silky. Elegant.
We’ve got no regrets at all in adding this spectacular wine to our range. We’ve had Guy Salmona’s Fronton Tradition in the Chilled & Tannin range for some time and so, when we got the option to secure a few cases of this super rare single vineyard special cuvee, we jumped at the opportunity!
Chateau Laurou comes from the heart of the Fronton appellation in South West France. Winemaker Guy Salmona escaped from data engineering to follow his true love of winemaking and the famed, La Négrette, the region’s quintessential black grape, which is found almost nowhere else in the World.
This organic and vegan wine comes from a tiny single vineyard plot with a low yield harvested and is even rarer as it’s made with 100% Négrette (there has to be at least 50% in the blend by law in Fronton).
The result is an elegant, complex and wonderfully structured wine which we guarantee you won’t regret tucking into either.
