Domaine Lafage Bastide Miraflors Roussillon Vielles Vignes 2016 (750ml)

94 pts Jeb Dunnuck
A wine that almost always over-delivers, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is, I suspect, the finest vintage for this cuvée to date (it’s in the same league as the off-the-charts 2015). A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache from Lesquerde and Saint Martin de Fenouillet (both in the northern part of the Roussillon), aged all in older barrels and concrete tanks, it boasts rockstar notes of ripe blackberry fruits, spice, dried garrigue, and hints of chocolate. Possessing a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and sensational purity, it’s another one of those values that almost seems too good to be true. Drink it any time over the coming 3-4 years.

Made up of Syrah and Grenache, these are perhaps 2 of the most successful grape varieties in this part of France. Syrah offers the intensely dark color, black-pepper spice, and a note of game, while the Grenache gives this wine the earth and hints of garrigue amongst the ripe dark berry flavors (Garrigue is the smell of the dried herbs and grasses found in Southern France on a hot windy day.) This is a full-throttle, mouth-filling, intensely flavored red blend that is delicious now (given some breathing), and will age beautifully for the next 5 years.
