Domaine Lafage 2011 Tessellae Old Vines Cotes de Roussillon

Your Price: $11.89

Availability: Out of Stock

From Jean-Marc Lafage and rock star importer Eric Solomon, the 2011 Tessellae Old Vines will leave you dumbfounded. Dumbfounded because how can a wine with this level of quality be shipped across a big ocean and a large continent and sell for less than twelve bucks? We don't know how they do it and quite frankly don't want to know. We just want them to keep making it and selling it so cheaply. The price/quality ratio here is laughable. Grab some before it's gone! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The least expensive offering is the 2011 Tessellae Old Vines Cotes du Roussillon, an intriguing blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache Gris, a rare white grape. It was aged 12 months in concrete tanks prior to being bottled unfiltered. It boasts an expansive, intense, complex bouquet of garrigue, strawberries and black cherries intermixed with a hint of spring flowers, a velvety texture and a voluptuous mouthfeel. It made me write in my tasting notes that it was a "$12 Cote Rotie of the south," although $12 Cote Roties went out of existence about 50 years ago. This beautiful, soft, round, seductive red should drink well for 4-5 years.
