Legend has it that négrette was brought to the area around the city of Toulouse from the Near East by the Knights Templar. While it’s true that most grapes have ancestry in the Near East, chances are slim that the legend is true. More likely, per DNA analysis, is that négrette mutated or was crossed with a grape in the côt (malbec) family of grapes some hundreds of years before the advent of modern amphelography. All that aside, this is a delicious traditional bottling from the appellation of Fronton, about a half hour drive northwest of Toulouse. Drink with good food!
