Domaine Lafage 'Bastide Miraflors' Syrah & Vieilles Vignes Grenache

Proprietary Blend - Red

750 ML


Product Description

A joint venture and custom cuvee between Jean-Marc Lafage and Eric Solomon. One of the oldest viticultural areas of France, vines in the Roussillon were cultivated by the Romans, and perhaps even before that. With some of the most dramatic topography in France, many of the zones are composed of extremely steep hillsides resembling the Priorat in Spain in many ways. One of the most sought-after winemakers of Europe at the moment, Jean-Marc Lafage, lends his expertise with Southern European varietals to several top estates in both France and Spain (he makes Evodia and Novellum with Eric Solomon among other custom cuvee projects). However, his best work is perhaps at home at his estate in the hills of the Roussillon with his wife, Eliane, also a highly accomplished winemaker. This wine is coming from Miraflors (gallets roules) and Saint Paul de Fenouillet black slate (Vallee de lAgly). Very long maceration (6 weeks). Rating: 91WA
