All old vine Carignan, the 2019 Côtes Catalanes Tessellae from Jean-Marc Lafage offers a beautifully pure nose of red and blue fruits, brambly herbs, violets, and leather. This carries to a medium to full-bodied red with silky tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. It has impressive purity as well as elegance and is going to keep for 2-4 years.  Barrel Sample: 90-92
90pts Decanter
Intriguing scents of leafy red fruits with peppery raspberries. Plush and voluptuous on the palate with a soft acidity.

 

Winemaker Notes

Fragrant nose of ripe blackberries, plums, anise, pepper and herbs. Spicy and silky on the palate, echoing the nose with ripe fruits and herbs, silky tannins and a long finish.
