I bought three bottles of this for twenty pounds on www.bidforwine.co.u/auctions/show/120387.This is the top wine of the domaine and is made from 51% negrette,25%syrah and 24% cabernet sauvignon which are vinified separately and aged in oak barrels for 18 months before being blended together.The rules of the appellation state that the wine must be at least 50% negrette,a grape unique to the area around Toulouse,which was originally introduced by returning crusaders in the middle ages who discovered it in Cyprus.As the name would suggest it gives the wine a very dark,inky black colour but it can be difficult to grow as it is very thin-skinned I drank the first bottle the other night with my supper of pork belly and I liked it.There is intense and concentrated almost liquorice fruit but not quite like other wines with syrah in them such as Northern Rhones because it is a spicy and floral tasting fruit It is definitely an unusual and unique wine and it is a pity it is not more widely available
