100% Negrette

Since the Middle Ages, Fronton, just north of Toulouse, has been the home of the Negrette grape variety, which is nearly exclusive to the area. The region encompasses 2,300 hectares of vines dominated by dry heat and rocky soils and the landscape is marked by hills and valleys, ranging from 300 to 600 ft above sea level. The banks of the Tarn and Garonne rivers have particularly poor gravel soils. Vines grown in this area are forced to struggle and dig deeper for nutrients to establish a stronger root system. This gives the grapes very distinct flavors and they are commonly characterized as having notes of violets and licorice.

‘What is negrette? What is Fronton? What on earth is La Folloe Noire d’Ambat? To answer that last question, you must try this red, made from the inky black negrette grape grown in Fronton, in southwest France just north of Toulouse. You will find La Folloe Noire d’Ambat is a ripe, succulent, exotically fruit wine that makes for delicious, easy drinking anytime. What else do you need to know?” (Eric Asimov, New York Times, January 2014)'
