Domaine LaFage Cuvee Nicolas Grenache Noir 2019
|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Cotes Catalanes|
Bright ruby color. Ripe wine, loaded with red fruits on the nose. The mouth feel is concentrate, with soft tannins, and tastes of raspberry, cassis, blueberries and blackberries, with a great length. The body and the fruit of the Nicolas will be perfect with a beef Tartar, leg of lamb, or a pot-au-feu.
All Grenache brought up in demi-muids and aged on lees for 8 months, the medium ruby/purple hued color of the 2019 Cuvée Nicolas is followed by a killer bouquet of kirsch liqueur, savory spices, cured meats, and peppery garrigue. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and gorgeously textured, it has wonderful richness with no sensation of weight or heaviness. It's another insane value from this team.
