Domaine Lafage Cuvee Nicolas Cotes Catalanes Vieilles Vignes Grenache 2019

Description

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark All Grenache brought up in demi–muids and aged on lees for 8 months, the medium ruby/purple hued color of the 2019 Cuvée Nicolas is followed by a killer bouquet of kirsch liqueur, savory spices, cured meats, and peppery garrigue. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and gorgeously textured, it has wonderful richness with no sensation of weight or heaviness. It’s another insane value from this team. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

K&L Notes

Jean-Marc Lafage has knocked it out of the park once again with this high-quality, low-cost stunner of a wine. Domaine Lafage is housed in his facility just outside the city of Perpignan. One of the most advanced wineries in the region, Jean-Marc and his wife Elaine use a range of sites gathering some of the best fruit in the Roussillon. For over a decade they have crafted many of the "must buy" wines from the region. The Cuvée Nicolas is named for Jean-Marc and Eliane's son. It is sourced from 65-plus-year-old Grenache vines from two main soils, the red schist in the foothills of the Pyrenees and the black schist from the village of Maury. All grapes are hand harvested and then fermented in large tank. Aging is in a mix of concrete and large oak barrels. This Grenache has incredible purity reflecting the rich red and black fruit flavors that this warm wine growing region produces. Another tremendous buy from the Lafages. *Practicing Organic*
