Saturday, October 7th from 2-5pm – Stop by the store this Saturday to taste two incredible values from Domaine Lafage! We’ll debut the new vintages of their 92 point rated Novellum Chardonnay as well as their 93 point rated Narassa. And we’ll be offering these wines up at the best prices in the country.
Year after year, Jean-Marc and Eliane Lafage make some of the best wines coming out of Southern France. With vineyards scattered throughout the warm and sunny Roussillon region, they work with old vines to create sumptuous, delicious, and value-priced wines. Join us as we pull the corks on a couple of their top values. You won’t believe how good the 2016 Novellum Chardonnay is! From 30 year old vines planted in rocky soils, it offers up loads of substance and style and it costs less than $15. Equally impressive, the 2015 Domaine Lafage La Narassa is a total knockout! A blend of old-vine Grenache and Syrah, it is lush, hedonistic, and pleasure-bent. Stop by, taste, learn, and save big every Saturday at Table Wine.
All of the featured tasting wines are being offered at 20% off by the bottle on tasting day! All sales must be tendered by the end of business on Friday unless other arrangements are made. Email us at email@example.com with questions.
1. 2016 Domaine Lafage Novellum Chardonnay (Roussillon, France) – This easily qualifies as one of the best Chardonnay values in the world! The Wine Advocate says, “A sensational wine that will compete with wines five times the price, the 2016 Novellum Chardonnay is the real deal and actually reminded me of a Chardonnay from Mark Aubert in California’s Sonoma County. White peach, crushed rocks, spice and brioche notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that has depth, layered texture and length. Buy it.” – Jeb Dunnuck – 92 points
2. 2015 Domaine Lafage La Narassa (Roussillon, France) – La Narassa is sourced from the famed black schist soils of the Agly valley in the northern Roussillon near the village of Maury. It is made in a semi-ripasso by harvesting the Grenache in successive passes picking only the ripest clusters. “Notes of cassis, toasted spice, chocolate and licorice all emerge from the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lieu Dit La Narassa, which is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah brought up in demi-muids. This hedonistic, downright sexy, ripe and layered beauty will drink nicely right out of the gate.” – Jeb Dunnuck – Wine Advocate – 93 points
