The 2013 Vintage of these two Rosé sold-out in record time last year!  I’m happy to report yesterday we received our first drop of the 2014’s and they received similar 92 Point (Puech Haut) and 90 Point (LaFage) scores.

Pricing is exactly the same as last year, and the packaging is similar with glass corks on both and frosted glass on the Puech Haut.

A mixed case (6 bottles each) of these Two Rosé Bottlings comes to $221.29 before tax.

Available Today!

2014 Domaine Lafage Miraflors Rosé

Cotes de Roussillon, France

1-11 Bottles – $18.99

12+ Bottles $17.09 (10% Off)

Mixed Cases are Welcome

Background:

Made in the Roussillon from a blend of 70% Mouvedre and 30% Grenache Gris from 70 year old vines.  The Roussillon region,  East of the Languedoc, carries a distinct Catalan culture as it has only been part of France since the late 17th century and is not far from Barcelona. Still light bodied, this embodies the style of Provence in terms of color and texture.  Immediately drinkable with bright strawberry flavors and a clean dry finish.  It spends 4 months on the lees which adds texture.

From the Wine Advocate Review: 90 Points: Jeb Dunnuck Reviewer

Starting off the roses, the 2014 Côtes du Roussillon Miraflors Rose is a direct press of 50% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache and 20% Grenache that was brought up all in stainless steel. Medium-bodied, fresh and racy, yet with solid depth of flavor, it gives up pretty strawberry, white peach and rose petal-like aromas and flavors. Drink it over the coming year.

When it comes to quality-to-price ratios, no one does it better than proprietor Jean Marc Lafage. Located just outside of Perpignan, this estate has a wealth of old vines and vineyards to pull from, and the addition of a massive new winery is only going to give them even more control. While it’s easy to write off these value-priced releases as fruit bombs, please taste the wines! They have beautiful purity of fruit, impeccable balance and each release has their own unique character. At the prices, these are no-brainers.

The 2014 Cuvee Prestige Rose is another stunner that readers need to purchase by the case. Loaded with juicy watermelon, citrus and tangerine notes, it’s medium-bodied, pure, supple and refreshing. It’s a no brainer that will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming year.

Owned by Gerard Bru, Chateau Puech-Haut lies just outside the village of Saint Drezery, located to the northeast of Montpellier. The estate covers over 100 hectare and they receive consulting advise from Philippe Cambie. While they opted to not produce their limited production cuvees in 2013, they will in 2014, which is a solid vintage for the estate, and this region of the Languedoc. The style here is ripe, yet the wines have beautiful purity and plenty of freshness. In addition, the tannin quality is superb, and the wines are always a joy to drink. This is easily one of my favorite estates from the south of France.
