2011 Lafage Bastide Miraflors
Lafage Bastide Miraflors is a stunning red wine gem of Syrah and old-vines Grenache from the Roussillon wine region of southwestern France. The wine's official appellation is Cotes Catalanes IGP. Deep in this Catalan region of southwestern France, Domaine Lafage blends juicy, aromatic wines that deliver the rare combination of distinctiveness and affordability. Although only in his thirties, Jean-Marc Lafage already has over 15 years of world-class winemaking to his credit. The Lafage Estate covers 200 hectares near Perpignan, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees separating France and Spain. Robert Parker in his Wine Advocate rated this wine 93 points, calling it "brilliantly pure with a stunning nose of spring flowers, blackberries, cassis and earth. It is almost incomprehensible that something of this quality, complexity and richness can be purchased for $25 to $50." We wholeheartedly agree!
Lafage Bastide Miraflors is made from 70% Syrah and 30% old-vines Grenache farmed organically on vineyards 900-feet high. Medium-full in body, the wine is brilliant red in color with intense aromas and flavors of black raspberry, cassis, spice and floral notes. Aged entirely in cement, it is long and rewarding on the finish.
Enjoy Lafage Bastide Miraflors over the next 3-4 years with roast pork, cassoulet, grilled lamb chops, burgers and goat cheese.
