The still-in-barrel 2012 Coteaux du Languedoc Clos des Truffiers offers incredible minerality in its sweet cassis, blackberry, underbrush and charcoal-driven bouquet. Full-bodied and certainly uber concentrated and decadent, the overall profile here is one of elegance, seamlessness and length. It’s a gorgeous barrel sample and will certainly be a candidate for the wine of the vintage.

Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

This Syrah is part of the oldest vines in Languedoc a valued Patrimony of the Family the first bottle of Clos des Truffiers saw the light in 1997. Located on the highlands of the Saint Pargoire commune in Hérault the parcels of Syrah produce today, one of the greatest wines from Languedoc.

'Made by the team at Chateau de la Negly, Clos des Truffiers comes from a single plot of Syrah vines that were planted in 1962 (from a massale selection from the northern Rhone), just outside the village of Saint-Pargoire. Tiny yields, long macerations and aging over two years in oak are all the norm here, and the result, as I think this small vertical attests, is one of the greatest expressions of Syrah from France All five of these are incredible wines that I wish every reader could taste. Don’t miss a chance to latch onto a bottle if you can!' Jeb Dunnuck
