"It's another one of those values that almost seems too good to be true." - Jeb Dunnuck
Bastide Miraflors by Domaine Lafage has been our best-selling red wine from France and one of the stores' most popular wines over the past several years. In particular, the 2016 vintage of Bastide Miraflors has been gobbled up by our customers at an astonishing rate.
Sadly, this outstanding vintage is coming to an end so we grabbed the remaining bottles from the distributor. This fantastic Rhone blend received a 94 Point score from Jeb Dunnuck and is an off the charts value.
We have written several times about how great this wine is and its unbelievable quality to price ratio. This is a full-bodied blend composed of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache. Bastide Miraflors is a rich, dark-fruited wine with silky smooth tannins made in a juicy, crowd-pleasing style.
This is a more than worthy follow-up to the email we recently sent out for Lafage Narassa, which quickly sold out. Jeb Dunnuck described this wine as "possessing a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and sensational purity," He finishes the review by stating, "It's another one of those values that almost seems to good to be true."
This is another brilliant wine from Domaine Lafage and its importer Eric Solomon. We are thrilled to offer the remaining bottles from this vintage.
Grab the last of this fantastic wine and amazing value while you can. When it's gone, it's gone!
JEB DUNNUCK 94 POINTS - "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."
