"A wine that almost always over-delivers, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is, I suspect, the finest vintage for this cuvée to date (it’s in the same league as the off-the-charts 2015).

"A wine that almost always over-delivers, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is, I suspect, the finest vintage for this cuvée to date (it’s in the same league as the off-the-charts 2015). A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache from Lesquerde and Saint Martin de Fenouillet (both in the northern part of the Roussillon), aged all in older barrels and concrete tanks, it boasts rockstar notes of ripe blackberry fruits, spice, dried garrigue, and hints of chocolate. Possessing a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and sensational purity, it’s another one of those values that almost seems too good to be true. Drink it any time over the coming 3-4 years."~J.D.

Wine Advocate 89
"The 2016 Bastide Miraflors is 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache grown on granite and gneiss at elevations approaching 400 meters above sea level. Half was matured in demi-muids, half in concrete, with oak staves. It's a firm, structured wine—not so much as to be unapproachable, just enough to partner with red meat. A hint of cracked pepper accents blueberry and cassis fruit in this medium to full-bodied red that comes across as being similar to a solid Saint-Joseph."~J.C.

Domaine Lafage

View all from Domaine Lafage
Domaine LafageJean-Marc and Eliane Lafage farm 160 hectares of vines located just south of the capital of French Catalonia, Perpignan. Some of their vineyards are situated a few kilometers from the Mediterranean, while others can be found in the foothills of the Purenees. This range of sites allows them to make refreshing whites, concentrated reds, and – this being the Roussillon – some fortified wines, as well. Benefiting from a warm, dry climate, the estate is farmed organically. They grow primarily Grenache (Blanc, Gris & Noir), Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Marsanne, Roussanne and Chardonnay, with a significant portion of the vines well over 50 years old. The soil is more weathered with alluvial gravel the closer it is to the coast, while it is predominately schist in the higher elevation sites. Domaine Lafage harvests by hand and the winemaking is surprisingly uncomplicated: stainless steel for the fresher whites, but mostly concrete tanks for the rest with a small amount of French oak demi-muids.

LaFage

"I enjoy all of the LaFage wines and have been buying them for years.....highly recommended for classic taste profile."

Keith

Amazing value

"I can only concur with the other evaluations. This has an amazing combination of supple tannins (esp for a Syrah!) gently ripe fruit (blackberry above all) in lovely balance. Langue-doc Rousillion is an under-rated region and this producer I s outstanding."
