Domaine Lafage Tessellae Old Vines Cotes du Roussillon 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"An intriguing blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache Gris, a rare white grape. It was aged 12 months in concrete tanks prior to being bottled unfiltered. It boasts an expansive, intense, complex bouquet of garrigue, strawberries and black cherries intermixed with a hint of spring flowers, a velvety texture and a voluptuous mouthfeel. This beautiful, soft, round, seductive red should drink well for 4-5 years...93" WA 12/12

The Lafage Estate is expanded over a little more than 200 hectares, including stretches of heath and pine, 138 hectares of which is cultivated for wine-making. The dwelling of the manor is an ancient stone-built farmhouse located next to the vineyard-fringed road between Perpignan, the former capital of the Kings of Majorca, and the Mediterranean seashore. Hugging the 80 hectares of marine-land, where the now archaeological site of Villarnau was once a mediaeval village, the vineyards of the Lafage Estate dominate the surrounding grapevine. It provides spectacular views of the Albères, an extension of the Pyrenees mountain range, which forms a natural border between France and Spain before plunging into the blue of the Mediterranean. At the entrance of the Estate, a boutique offers wine-tasting and colourful commentaries to wine-lovers passing by. Read less

Jammy and rich on the nose with lots of almost grapey, black berry fruit that’s framed by hints of truffle, black spice and cardamon. Smooth and plush in the mouth, there’s enough acid to keep this bright on the palate but this is a rich and seamless feeling wine. The fruit has a nice clear quality to it, transparent wild strawberry and wild berries all surrounded by dried herb and old wood notes. Turning more red fruited on the backend and through the clean and focused finish, this ends a bit abruptly but has a bit more finesse than one might expect at this price point. 88pts
