2013 Lafage Miraflors  Rose   reg 16.99 

$14.99 by the case


Winery: "Very fresh, pale color with salmon hues. The nose references sea flavors with spices and minerality. The wine palate is crisp; the spiciness and fruit have a nice, round finish. Enjoy with mixed salads, cold and grilled meats."

On Jean-Marc Lafage, winemaker: "One of the most sought-after winemakers of Europe at the moment, Jean-Marc Lafage, lends his expertise with Southern European varietals to several top estates in both France and Spain (he makes Evodia and Novellum with Eric Solomon among other custom cuvee projects). However, his best work is perhaps at home at his estate in the hills of the Roussillon with his wife, Eliane, also a highly accomplished winemaker."

 

Reviews for the 2012:

 

Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate: "The early-bottled, gorgeous 2012 Miraflors Rose is a blend of 70% Mourvedre and 30% Grenache Gris that was aged on its lees for four months prior to bottling. Its beautiful color is accompanied by scents of framboise, earth and strawberries presented in a medium-bodied, surprisingly substantial format. Think of it as a Bandol-styled rose offered at a much more realistic price point. Drink it over the next year." Dec 2012

The Rhone Report:  "A knockout rose that has Provencal aromas and flavors, with an almost Tavel like richness and depth on the palate, the 2012 Domaine Lafage Côtes du Roussillon Miraflors Rosé (70% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache Gris, aged on lees for 4-months) is light salmon/pink in color and possesses superb strawberry, cherry, and mineral aromas to go with an incredibly pure, detailed, and focused palate. Great all around, it’s hard to put down. Buy it by the case and enjoy bottles over the coming 1-2 years."
