Domaine Lafage Miraflors Rosé (750ml)
In the 80s, Jean-Marc actively participated in vineyard work and eventually, his father trusted him to make some of his own wine with their grapes. A few years later, Jean-Marc met Eliane during their wine studies and their shared passion for vines (and wine) led them to travel to other wine regions, acquiring knowledge along the way. Eventually. they settled back in France and took over the 36 ha of family land around Perpignan, Canet, and Maury- eventually taking over the entire family estate in 2001. The acquisition of Mas Miraflors took place in 2006; Jean-Marc and Eliane are 7th generation vignerons in the heart of the Roussillon.
Pouring a pale, salmon colour, the nose has an intense bouquet of rose, strawberry, and white peach. On the palate, these flavours persist, resulting in a light and juicy expression of Rosé. Use as an aperitif, pair with a number of seafood dishes, or serve alongside lighter, chicken fare.
Made from a blend of Mourvedre, Grenache Gris, and Grenache Noir, the grapes come from vines planted on steep slopes arranged in narrow terraces, where all the work is manual as tractor access is often impossible. Picked early to ensure a fresher style, the grapes are pressed without crushing to achieve that pale, pink hue.
