Select Vins - Gros, Paux-Rosset
Select Vins is a collaboration between Château de la Négly owner, Jean Paux-Rosset, and his consulting winemaker, Claude Gros. Together they have assembled some of the best grape growers from across appellations of the Languedoc including the following: Minervois, Faugères, Fitou, La Clape, Corbières, and Côtes du Roussillon.
Château de la Négly is located 20 km from Narbonne in the heart of the La Clape Mountains. This World Heritage site, meaning “pile of stones” in Occitan, was an island up until the Gallo-Roman period, and before the Aude’s river sediment deposits became part of the mainland. Its soil is a sandy limestone originating from very porous, calcareous rock slides, which allows the soil to retain rainwater for the vines. The sea’s proximity and influence regulate the impact of harsh weather due to the sun and the dry, very powerful northern Tramontane wind on the vines.
