Domaine Lafage Bastide Miraflors 2017 (France: Languedoc-Roussillon) (ID# 1517)

Name Domaine Lafage Bastide Miraflors 2017 (ID# 1517)
Varietal Syrah and Grenache
Region France: Languedoc-Roussillon
Notes "A blend of 74% Syrah and 26% Grenache that was brought in a mix of tank and used barrels, the 2017 Bastide Miraflors has a fabulous minerality as well as terrific kirsch, black raspberry, wild fennel, white pepper, and hints of black licorice aromas and flavors. Pure, medium to full-bodied, silky, and seamless on the palate, it’s perfectly balanced, and way over-delivers.” (Jeb Dunnuck)

Additional Notes

"The 2017 Cotes du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is a 70-30 blend of Syrah and Grenache, aged in a combination of tanks and barriques. It has some Ribena-like aromas, then delivers waves of ripe cassis and blackberries. Full-bodied and concentrated, it remains fresh and streamlined on the palate, finishing in a soft flurry of dusty tannins." (Wine Advocate)
