94pts Jeb Dunnuck

We love a wine (or anything else for that matter) that's described as "almost too good to be true". Jeb Dunnuck positively raves about this spectacular value from the Languedoc Roussillon.  And why shouldn't he? He's so smitten with the wine he thinks they could charge "3-4 times the price". The Domaine Lafage Lieu Dit La Narassa is seductively delicious and deeply flavorful.  It's got dark, rich fruit, some spice, bold earthiness, nice tannins, and a smoothness which rolls across the tongue so effortlessly, you'll find it hard to stop at just one or two glasses.  Drink it alone, with cured meats, hearty pasta dishes, grilled and roasted meats and vegetables, and much more. We dare you not to love it.

Jeb Dunnuck:  "Almost too good to be true, the 2017 Narassa is based on 82% Grenache and 18% Syrah, with the Grenache coming from the black slate soils of Maury and the Syrah from the higher elevation, sandy, granitic soils of Saint Martin de Fenouillet. Brought up all in used barrels, this full-bodied, deep, meaty Syrah reminds me a top California GSM blend and has a rocking nose of white pepper, black olives, cedarwood, and ample black fruits. At this quality, they could charge three to four times the price. Drink 2019-2022." Apr 2019 

Winery:  "La Narassa is sourced from the famed black schist soils of the Agly valley in the northern Roussillon near the village of Maury. It is made in a semi-ripasso by harvesting the Grenache in successive passes picking only the ripest clusters. Once at the cellars the fruit is destemmed and only the best berries are chosen for fermentation after a short pre-fermentation maceration."
