92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Nicolas is 100% Grenache, still aging in a combination of demi-muids and tanks. There's a floral top note accenting ripe black cherries on the nose, while the palate is medium to full-bodied, supple and creamy, finally finishing with a touch of velvet and spice. Rating: 90-92
The 2018 Domaine Lafage Cuvee Nicolas carries fabulous notes of black raspberry, licorice and crushed violets to go with medium-bodied richness, fine tannin and a supple, pretty profile on the palate, with class and elegance.
