Grenache 70%, Syrah 30%. A very pleasant wine with aromas of ripe fruit, cherries, black currants and undergrowth. In the mouth, it is very smooth with good concentration. A lovely bottle full of charm and roundness. As with all of Domaine Lafond's wines, this has been very well rated among wine connoisseurs and is incredible value! Since 2012, all of Domaine Lafond's wines are 100% organic and suitable for vegans!
The roots of the Domaine date back 1780 when Jean-Pierre Lafond’s great-uncle, Pascal Odoyer, Govenor of Tavel, became one of the pioneers in wine production and his estate has been handed down from generation to generation ever since. Involved in the foundation of the Tavel appellation in the 1940's the family now run by Jean-Pierre Lafond and son Pascal began selling bottled wines of Cotes du Rhone Lirac and Tavel in the late 1970's, adding the fine parcel of Chateauneuf du Pape in 2001. The property decided to go entirely organic, officially designated so in 2009.
These medal winning wines are of the highest quality in their subsequent appelations. The Tavel Rose 2010 received the Coup de Coeur in the French Guide Hachette and the Lirac Blanc won the regional trophy in the Decanter wine challenge. Robert Parker has also been very complimentary about the quality of the Chateauneuf du Pape and Cotes du Rhone in recent vintages.
The 2012 Cotes du Rhone Roc-Epine offers up an earthy, mineral-driven style with pepper, leafy herbs and dark fruit showing on the nose and palate. Nicely balanced, with the freshness and suppleness of the vintage, as well as loads of fruit, it should be consumed over the coming couple of years. Drink now-2017.
