Natalie's Score: 88/100

A great value for this savoury, juicy southern French red wine made from Grenache Noir grapes. Spectacular, robust red wine with glorious aromas and flavours of black cherry liqueur, anise and smoke. Loaded with seductive black raspberry on the finish. Catalon soils in the heart of the Pyrenees made from old vines. Superb craftsmanship!

Grenache Noir food pairings: turkey, soft cheese, roasted beef, lamb.

Harmonious Hard Cheese Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Loads of blackberry fruit, fruit skin, crushed rocks, graphite, glycerine, purple flowers, kirsch, and a hint of herb and warm spice. It has an ironish finish. This is excellent stuff, especially at $17. 91 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
From the Côtes Catalanes in the Roussillon wine region, Domaine Lafage Cuvée Nicolas Vieilles Vignes (2015) is a robust Grenache Noir with black cherry liqueur, anise and smoke (from oak ageing) on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
