6th generation of family owners – award winning estate
Located between the sea and the mountains, half way between Perpignan and the Mediterranean coast, Domaine Lafage is one of our favourite new discoveries. Six generation ‘vignerons’, Jean-Marc and Eliane carry on the Lafage tradition, maintaining their family style of balanced, elegant wines displaying up front fruit. Their hard work has been rewarded with many accolades and medals from the Guide Hachette. What makes their estate particularly interesting is the fact that they grow a wide range of grape varieties (16) and produce an eclectic and varied range of wine styles, from crisp, clean whites to rich, fortified reds.
A fortified red wine made with Grenache Noir, a great alternative to Port, more fruity and not as powerful. Packed with up front jammy black fruits with hints of Christmas spices, this wine is simply luscious, ideal match to dark chocolate or matured cheeses.
