Natalie's Score: 92/100

Gorgeous weave of aromas on the nose here: ripe blackberry on the palate of this full-bodied, supple French red wine that's a blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes. The vines are planted on south-facing terraces at the foot of the Pyrenees, Cote Sud translates to South Side. The white sister wine of this red is called Cote Est or East Side... sounds like a Broadway musical. Eastside Story ;) This southern French red wine was matured in concrete tanks. This wine will reward short-term cellaring of a few years. Pair with grilled meats.

Food pairings: breaded veal cutlets, duck breast with celeriac purée, pomegranate gastrique and Brussel sprout ragout, tagliatelle alla Bolognese, herb-rubbed roast.

Reviews and Ratings

Lafage 2015 is a full-bodied Syrah and Grenache Noir red wine blend with fleshy blackberry, ripe red berries, seductive black plum, garrigue herbs and spicy pepper flavours on the palate. Tannins are grippy and this beauty can benefit from a few years of cellar ageing. Lots to love starting with the abundance of dark fruit ripened under the sunshine of the South-facing Côtes Catalanes Pyrenees slopes. Tank aged to preserve freshness and purity of fruit. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
