Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Chateau De La Negly Part II

As we worked our way towards the Pyrenees and into Roussillon we made a stop in La Clape. We were fortunate enough to be able to visit one of the most renowned wine makers of the appellation as well as the entire region, Chateau De La Negly.

The story of this chateau is a love affair with land and vine. A man, Jean Paul Rosset who inherited this mediterranean wonderland from his parents and turned it into some of the most celebrated wine in the area.

The information in this video is so plentiful that I had to put it into three parts or else it would be the length of a short film. In this video Cyril Chamontin, Jean Pual Rosset’s passionate winemaker takes us into the winery to give a peek at the winemaking process. The diligence and focus of Cyril’s process is infectious!

Enjoy the tour and get ready for the next video when we meet the man who made it all happen!

Enjoy! Share! Comment! Spread wine love! WINE TO THE PEOPLE!

I will continue next week with specifics on the various appellations and microclimates of the area. ENJOY!


We have come a long way here in the United States wine culture. 1976 was cool! The whole “green thing”. And something that kinda gets forgotten. We do great bubblies! We don’t call them Champagne. We don’t call them Champers we call them:
