Bastide Miraflors 2018
We're thinking wild mushroom white pizza with lots of garlic, pork roast stuffed with prosciutto, lemony bread crumbs and fresh sage, or lamb chops grilled with garlic, chiles and anchovies with this Bastide Miraflors. What are you thinking?
Bastide Miraflors is a cuvée created from Grenache grown on rocky, alluvial clay soils resembling those of the Rhône Valley combined with Syrah grown on schist in the village of Maury. After a long maceration of six weeks the wine ages for 12 months in concrete (Grenache) and 600L French oak demi-muids (Syrah).
Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on 74% Syrah and 26% Grenache brought up in in a combination of concrete tanks (for the Grenache) and one year old demi-muids (for the Syrah), the 2018 Cotes Du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is a knockout bottle of wine. It offers loads of black fruits, roasted herbs, peppered meat, violets, and bacon fat as well as full-bodied richness, a round, opulent style, ripe tannins, and a blockbuster finish. It’s one of the finest values out there. Maturity: 2021-2026." Mar 2021
