A 50-50 blend of Bourboulenc (from 50-year-old vines) and Roussanne, the 2018 La Clape La Brise Marine Blanc is a fine effort. Understated aromas of melon and lime give way to a vibrant, medium-bodied palate that's fresh and electric on the long finish, with bright acidity and briny notes coming together in a tongue-tingling finale.

The 2018 La Clape Brise Marine Blanc is equal parts Bourboulenc and Roussanne that was brought up all in tank. It has vibrant notes of white flowers, salty citrus, and a kiss of minerality to go with a clean, beautifully balanced, refreshing style on the palate. It’s great today, but I suspect it will keep for 4-5 years, if not longer.
The 2018 Chateau de la Negly La Clape La Brise Marine Blanc is a brilliant color. The nose pairs aromas of exotic fruits and white peach with notes of fresh almond. The lively palate is powerful and full bodied. A mineral note accentuates its complexity. Ideal served chilled with a Mediterranean tuna tartare.
