Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 90/100
A blockbuster big southern French red wine that's what I call a palate-wacker. Juicy and full-bodied x 10. Very supple and smooth. Lots of fleshy blackberry aromas and flavours. Great value, quality and taste for the price. Pair with pork tenderloin.
Carignan food pairings: stuffed beef braciole, venison stew, sharp aged cheddar.
Glorious Game Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Blackberry, mocha and spice on the nose, the palate is full bodied and smooth with lots of complexity - notes of dark fruit, chocolate, mint and black pepper. Lingering spicy dark fruit finish.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Ripe black and red berry aromas followed by intense black licorice and a long red plum flavoured finish. Enjoy this juicy, moderately tannic, medium+ bodied French Carignan with herb-encrusted roasted pork tenderloin. Tasted Sep 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
Tasted Oct 31st, 2017. Colour dark red, thick legs. Aromas and flavours of black cherry, cranberry, strawberry, sandalwood and smoke. Taste dry, fruity, hot, mouthwatering with medium tannin. Finish with heat and black licorice. Looking for a high alcohol experience, with fruit this is it. Try pairing as a Thanksgiving wine ( wine folly).
I would pair it with a fat pork and beef burger. I would try this grape variety again.
|From the Cotes Catalanes in the Southwest of France, Lafage Tessellae (2015) is a veilles vignes, full-bodied 100% Carignan wine. The wine is juicy red fruit, raspberry, dark chocolate and Christmas cake spice with a smoky finish, and so well priced as well. Decant for one hour and drink now with a big, juicy Porterhouse steak. - Community Wine Reviews|
