A surprisingly complex and layered chilly red, thanks to the fantastic Negrette grape and the vineyard work of Anne and the Arbeau family. Negrette specialists, it's all they do!
Spiced, layered, grippable, and rippable! It wants to be invited to Thanksgiving! 🦃
The vineyard is located on a slight slope where the soil is mostly boulbène, a type of acidic siliceous and sand-clay soil found throughout the area. 50% of the vineyards are planted with Négrette, a variety that, as decreed by the AOP Fronton, must comprise 50-70% of a grower’s vineyard.
Anne says that one goal is to focus on traditional varieties and another is “to increase their own production”. Since 2000, “a special selection of old vines has been grown, harvested, and vinified separately to make a limited production AOP Fronton”. In 2010 both rosé and red wines were produced using 100% Negrette.
