2016 “Je N'egrette Rien"

November 2017 DEWN Release

Negrette, aka Pinot St. George in Californa, is the rustic grape variety originating from the Côteaux Fronton in southwest France. The grape and resultant wine is preternaturally dark in color; it will stain your teeth, your glassware, perhaps even other aspects of your life. Do not say you weren’t warned.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
What does it smell like? It’s a bit indescribable. Maybe the love-child of Syrah and Petite Sirah with a bit of the feral Fer Servadou thrown in for good measure? The wine is not herbaceous in the least, but it is... how shall I say ...wild. The most extraordinary feature is its texture—unbelievably lush and velvety. There’s an insane concentrated core of fruit—black fruit, of course, with a complement of exotic wild berries—blackberries, black currants, bramble berries, berries that one smears on one’s face, rehearsing a scene from Lord of the Flies. You can also find the distinct fragrance of licorice and violets (we’re not too far from Toulouse here, indeed there’s nothing to lose.) No question that one has found oneself Doon country. But superimposed on the berry note is an almost tropical fruit character. Southwest France becomes the South Pacific with subtle suggestions of mango, guava.
Food Pairing Notes
Toulouse-Style Cassoulet, Saucisse de Toulouse (or any fresh, fatty pork sausage), Merguez Sausage, Braised Venison with Bacon, Chestnut and Wild Mushroom Sauce, Pork Tenderloin Marinated in Hoisin, Beef Short Ribs with Mole, Wild Mushroom Ravioli, Korean BBQ Ribs, Roasted Pigeon with Red Wine Jus, Berber Cous-Cous with Moroccan Spices, Rice Piaf (couldn't resist).
