Domaine Lafage Grand Cuvee Rose 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Pale in color, this rosé surprises with the complexity and refinement of its aromas of crushed strawberries and sweet spices. The mouth round and sip of leak ends on a beautiful tension that reflects the quality of the terroir chosen to elaborate this cuvée.

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

The wine is made from a combination of Grenache, Grenache Gris, and Mourvedre grapes, hand-harvested from sixty-five to eighty year-old vines. Gentle direct press prevents bitterness. Even the taille (a type of juice produced during the pressing process that contains more tannin than sugar or acidity) is discarded. What we have here is bottle that achieves the apotheosis of balance. Wine Advocate gave the 2014 vintage 92 points, while the 2013 received 94 points.
