    "I’ve raved time and time again about the quality - and value - coming from Domaine Lafage’s Jean-Marc Lafage."~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    Parker's Wine Advocate positively raves about this spectacular value from the Languedoc Roussillon. And why shouldn't they? The Domaine Lafage Lieu Dit La Narassa is seductively delicious and deeply flavorful. It's got dark, rich fruit, some earthiness and chocolate, nice tannins, and especially, a smoothness which rolls across the tongue so effortlessly, you'll find it hard to stop at just one or two glasses. Drink it alone, with cured meats, hearty pasta dishes, grilled and roasted meats and vegetables, and much more. We dare you not to love it.

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "From one of the warmest sites in France, the 2014 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lieu Dit La Narassa comes 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 (2016-2021).

    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." Apr 2016
