Perfect Cool Weather Everyday Red!
From Jean-Marc Lafage – Winemaker of Tessellae Carignan, Miraflors Rosé, Bastide Miraflors and
We just took delivery of another superstar wine from the winemaking & importing team of Jean-Marc Lafage in the Roussillon and Eric Solomon of European Cellars. How they produce a sub $20 wine with 60 year old vines that are organically farmed is a mystery to many of us!
This wine is unique because this is a vineyard-specific bottling of Grenache and Syrah where the soil is primarily black schist. Schist is the type of soil more typically found further west along the coast in the Priorat region of Spain. The very hot weather in this vineyard produces a wine that has an unmistakable chocolate aroma. Ripe tannins make this wine very silky while still being full bodied.
Very little oak is used (20% or less) so the wine remains very fresh, butthe fruit tones are still very dark without being having “baked” or “stewed characteristics. It’s a simply a great red blend, and the bottle commands a presence!
From the Wine Advocate Reivew – 93 Points!
From one of the warmest sites in France, the 2014 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lieu Dit La Narassa comes from 70-year-old vines planted in the black schist soils of Maury. Despite the rugged, hot terroir from where this beauty comes, the wine is pure silk and elegant, with lots of black raspberry, chocolate covered currants, pepper and olive notes giving way to a full-bodied 2014; it has polished tannin and a seamless texture. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that was aged mostly in concrete tank (20% in demi-muids), drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years.
