Domaine Lafage Fundacio Syrah Grenache 2016

$29.95

One of the finest wines I’ve tasted from the estate is unquestionably the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Fundacio... Full-bodied, incredibly pure, elegant, and silky, it boasts awesome notes of crème de cassis, black olives, leafy herbs, and subtle gamey, salty nuances. It’s a rich, powerful wine yet just glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It should keep for a decade. Jeb Dunnuck

Previous notes apply. This was tight and square on day one, singing at day three. Note to self: cellar couple of years

Luscious & rich yet retaining an unbelievable freshness. Nose dominated by rosemary, thyme and garrigue with a fresh whiff of mint and black pepper. Underneath this ripe blackberries, some roast and leather. On the palate this is dense, rich and with chewy yet juicy tannins. Yet this is perfectly balanced by fresh, fruity acidity... the 15% alc is perfectly integrated. This is a big, bold wine yet highly drinkable and delicious.

Domaine Lafage Fundacio 2016. 70% Syrah 30% Grenache. Very good effort at the price point. Will cellar my other bottles a couple of years.
