K&L Notes

This 100% Old Vine Carignan is one of our most anticipated wines this year. It hails from top value producer Jean Marc Lafage who is the master of over delivering for dollars paid. The 2012 Carignan was one of our most popular reds of last year. We expect this to blow the doors off that wine. The 2013 Carignan Vieilles Vignes has classic varietal notes with rich berry fruit, spice and mineral complexity. Once again, the Lafages nail it! (Keith Mabry, French Regional Buyer)

    I'm always excited when Jean Marc Lafage's wines arrive. Each one on its face is a home run. From the Novellum Chardonnay to the Miraflors Rosé to last year's Carignan VV, each wine represents the pinnacle of value that the south of France has to offer. Based in the Roussillon, the quality of Jean Marc's wines has elevated our expectations of what this region is and what passes for great value in the wine world. The 2013 "Tessellae" Carignan is all old vine fruit. It has rich black raspberry notes with hints of garrigue and hibiscus on the nose. Layers of spiced plum on the palate and oolong tea rounds out the finish. Not an over-the-top style of wine you may expect in a typical "Parker" 94 point wine. And that is a good thing! This is a wine of nuance and depth which means, once again Jean Marc Lafage knocks it out of the park!

    Yet another superb value from the Roussillon, this old-vine Carignan has everything one might want in a medium-bodied red: Lovely and baked fruit, elaborate spice, and a silky-smooth texture that is simply beautiful!

    An absolutely lovely 100% Carignan with flavors of pure bittersweet dark chocolate, crunchy herbs and spice, and juicy acidity that makes this extremely food friendly and versatile.

    If you liked the 2012, you'll definitely love this latest old vines Carignan from Lafage. Loaded with personality and sun-baked fruit from the South of France, this one's a stunner. It impresses from start to finish with peppery spiced plum and dark red fruits and a fresh and flavorful finish of black raspberry and dark chocolate. This new arrival is simply a steal!

    Wonderfully rich and ripe blackberry and raspberry dominate. The palate is smooth, large, and round, but not overly opulent. This warm and inviting old vine Carignan (70 year old vines) displays just a hint of vegetal tobacco leaf and spice. At 12 bucks a bottle, it is dangerously easy to drink and a massively good deal!
