2018 La Falaise, Château la Négly, La Clape, Languedoc

This is a big, juicy and powerful wine, not for the fainthearted. The nose packs in dark berries, spice, and wild herbs, and that rich, sunshine-drenched ripeness of the south. But press on past the heady aromas and you find a palate of admirable balance and elegance. There is nothing out of kilter here. There is surprising nuance and finesse beneath its power and brawn, with fondant tannins and a minty freshness. Its balance offers a similar appeal to that of great Châteauneuf-du-Papes, at a fraction of the price.
