Product guide note

This is from a region of southern France called the Languedoc (pron. Long-guh-dock) and made from a blend of local grape varieties. It is a rich, spicy red with deep, savoury damson and blackberry fruit and herby garrigue notes too.

Production information

Producer: Domaine Lafage

Jean-Marc Lafage’s family has been growing grapes in Roussillon for six generations but it was Jean-Marc who had the ambition to stop selling the grapes to the local co-op and create a domaine. He and his oenologist wife, Eliane, founded Domaine Lafage in 1996 and the estate now runs to some 138 hectares of vines across Roussillon, with parcels in the Agly Valley, Aspres and Perpignan.
