Review

94 points James Suckling. The Domaine Lafage, located just south of Perpignan, offers one of the most complete catalogues of France, characterised by their excellent pleasure/price ratio. One of their most remarcable wines at the moment is the Bastide Miraflors, a wine made up of Syrah and Grenache from old vines, a very special one, as it combines the ripeness and seduction one would normally associate to the red wines from the New World, with the elegance and strong personality of South Eastern France. Using Jeb Dunnuck's own words, a member of Robert Parker's team, "This wine is almost too good to be true".

This is a deep purple red created from Grenache aged in concrete tanks and Syrah matured in demi-muids. Its nose is unusually complex for its price: smoky notes, chocolate, Provençal herbs and wild fruits enhance a silky, mineral and extremely round palate. Definitely, a very well made wine that results in a sensational value.

La mejor calidad-precio

Realmente un gran descubrimiento de esta bodega en general. He probado varios de sus vinos y de forma subjetiva voy a decir que de momento me he encontrado con la mejor calidad-precio del mercado.

Un francés asequible

Un francés, con gran calidad, y al no ser burdeos, muy bien de precio. En Francia como en España, hay regiones vinícolas que en los últimos años han mejorado mucho sin dispararse el pewcio
