Unbeatable Values from Lafage – 12 High-Scoring Gems Under $20!
The Lord of Languedoc, the Ruler of Roussillon…whatever you want to call him, one thing is clear: Jean-Marc Lafage is one of the best winemakers plying his craft today... period!
We simply can’t say enough about both the wines and what he’s been able to do for Southern France. Using the traditional Rhone varietals (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache Blanc, and more) while marching to the beat of his own drum, Lafage crafts what the Wine Advocate calls “fabulous bargains” that need to be seen to be believed:
Just as we have, the Wine Advocate’s Robert Parker and Jeb Dunnuck have been following Jean-Marc Lafage and importer Eric Solomon for years, and they don’t hesitate for a moment to shower well-deserved praise on their perennially AWESOME wines:
“I struggle to think of another portfolio that encompasses anywhere close to this level of value, and the average quality to price for these wines is just hard to believe.” Wine Advocate 4/14
We grabbed as much as we could of these increasingly rare wines (many of them are being gobbled up by European wine lovers before they reach our shores!), and fans of the Lafage-Solomon team have already begun snatching these up by the case. These are wines that will be drinking beautifully at your next barbecue, and will more than impress on a holiday spread.
Whatever you do, don’t hesitate – these wines will be gone before you know it!
All My Best,
