Details for Domaine Lafage Cayrol 2017
Bottle size and vintage
The Cayrol from Domaine Lafage is a 100% Carignan of extreme purity that shows all the mineral character of the IGP Côtes Catalanes. The palate is medium to full-bodied and it boasts boundless elegance thanks to the most floral side of Carignan and its pleasant tannins; a touch of dust is mixed with blackberry, mint and pepper notes that give form to a fresh and meaty palate at the same time, that can only be explained by slate soils and the altitude at which the vines are planted. It's a wine that continues developing in the glass, resulting, if that's possible, into a more balanced and intense wine at every sip: spices, cherries, toasted hints... An exquisite wine that truly pictures the beauty, power and personality of a Carignan wine at the heart of the Roussillon.
Only a 10% of this wine is matured in oak to preserve what the soils, the old vines and the climate have to offer. A firm value, with guaranteed pleasure.

Lying between the sea and the mou...
