Best Red You'll Ever Drink for Under $20?
I don't believe we've ever said these words before in all the years we've been selling wine.
Today's offering is the BEST BOTTLE of red wine you're likely to EVER drink for under $20/bottle.
There. We said it.
We're not alone in thinking this, but before we get around to the BLOCKBUSTER review please consider this.
The minute you pick up this bottle of wine we think it will seduce you.
"Pure silk and elegant."
The bottle has the heft, weight and punt of a $100 bottle of Bordeaux. It feels serious. Really, really serious. When a wine commands your attention on the spot like this it can take your breath away but that's nothing COMPARED TO WHAT'S IN THE BOTTLE.
Let's see what our friends at the Wine Advocate have to say:
Domaine Lafage Lieu Dit Narassa Cotes du Roussillon 2014
"From one of the warmest sites in France, from 70-year-old vines planted in the black schist soils of Maury. Despite the rugged, hot terroir from where this beauty comes, the wine is pure silk and elegant, with lots of black raspberry, chocolate covered currants, pepper and olive notes giving way to a full-bodied 2014; it has polished tannin and a seamless texture.
A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that was aged mostly in concrete tank (20% in demi-muids), drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years.
I've raved time and time again about the quality - and value - coming from Domaine Lafage's Jean-Marc Lafage. A large estate that pulls from vines in the Agly Valley, the Aspres region, and vines around the estate and close the Mediterranean Sea, they've just completed work on a new, state of the art winery and cellar. I can only imagine the quality will continue to soar at this estate." (Wine Advocate)
Wine Advocate: 93 points
$19.99/bottle or $191.90/12 pack case ($15.99/bottle).
At less than $16/bottle this is a SHOW STOPPING, OVER THE TOP, SCREAMING SUPER VALUE.
Phew. We don't usually jump up and down like maniacs, but you really MUST DRINK this red wine. It's that good.
