Tavel revealed itself as propitious for wine growing with the introduction of vines to the Rhone valley by the ancient Greek Phoceen civilisation and the Roman colonies. Archaeological digs at a Gallo-Roman site revealed a stock of grape pips resulting from pressing and thereby indicating a regular production. After the dark ages of the barbaric invasions, the rural renaissance, towards the end of the middle ages, was marked by numerous real estate transactions, which indicates the existence of a demand for vineyards, notably by the various ecclesiastical institutions which were widely established locally. As from the XVI century, historians, with the help of extensive archives, reveal a remarkable development of the vineyards. As indicated in the land registers, the peasants abandoned the cereal crops for wine growing and thereby passed over to commercial agriculture with an advance of two centuries compared to French country life. – Description from Alejandro

  • Domaine Lafond Roc-Epine Tavel Rose 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The Lafond Roc-Epine 2016 is just what one expects of a Tavel; namely, a much deeper colour reminiscent of cranberry juice (perhaps a bit lighter), with a prominent scent of sour strawberry and roses. Entry is quite powerful for a rose; there is a stem-like almond bitterness on the finish with more unripe strawberry. Very rich. For a Tavel at th... Read More

  • Domaine Lafond Roc-Epine Tavel Rosé 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This respected rosé reminds one of a phenolphthalein solution (added to a base): darker than salmon but with deeper notes than mere pink. Attractive in the glass and full of strawberry, rhubarb and (perhaps) red huckleberry on the nose. Some tannin on the finish, but a rush of red fruits on the palate such as unripe strawberry. A palate cleansi... Read More

  • Domaine Lafond Lirac Roc-Epine 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Once again, the Lirac region comes through with a QPR winner. There seems to be a lot of good wines from this overlooked AOC. Give it some air to experience the roasted herbs and spice notes. It's a baby CdP at a fraction of the price. Read More

  • Domaine Lafond Lirac Roc-Epine 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I have watched this wine plummet in price at my local Costco over the past 3 months. They started out selling this wine for $13.99, and because it is a somewhat unfashionable appellation, it obviously didn't sell, so they have cut the price 4 times, and it is now available at the ridiculous price of $6.97 a bottle. I first tried this wine when... Read More

  • Domaine Lafond Lirac Roc-Epine 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I have had this wine with everything from chicken and dumplings to blackened cajun chicken with pasta alfredo and I find it has both the smoothness and backbone to compliment most dishes. The syrah added to this predominately grenache beauty gives it just enough strength to compliment the sweet smoothness of the grenache. A staple in my cellar. Read More

  • Domaine Lafond Lirac Roc-Epine 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Nose of minerals, wood and starchy fruit. This was a clearance wine, being a 2004, so I thought it might be no good, but worth the try. It's a dry wine that will appeal to those who like a crisp, stony, dry white for the summer vs. the sweeter options. Not spectacular, but nice. Read More
