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.

Relación calidad/precio espectacular

Vino francés a buen precio y muy bebible para todo el mundo, sin gran complejidad pero muy muy rico, el coupage de syrah y garnacha muy curioso por los matices que da
