Although only in his thirties, Jean-Marc Lafage already has almost 15 years of worldclass winemaking behind him. One of the most sought-after winemakers of Europe at the moment, Jean-Marc lends his expertise with Southern European varietals to several top estates in both France and Spain (he makes Las Rocas Garnacha with Eric Solomon) and also in South America. However, his best work is perhaps at home at his estate in the hills of the Roussillon with his wife, also an accomplished winemaker.
Domaine Lafage Cotes Catalanes Cuvee Nicolas Vieilles Vignes 2017 750 ML
Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.
Made from 100% Grenache, the 2015 Cotes Catalanes Nicolas comes from granite and schist soils in the Roussillon and is brought up in demi-muids and barrels. This sensational wine is unquestionably one of the best values I've tasted in a long, long time. Blueberries, kirsch, chocolate and garrigue all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy, polished beauty that offers tons of fruit and texture while never seeming over the top or cumbersome. Buy a case, pretend you spent a lot more money than you actually did, and drink this knock-out red over the coming 2-3 years.
