“”””””Another new cuve from the indefatigable Jean-Marc Lafage, Roubials is primarily Grenache with 10-20% Syrah added to the final blend. All are grown on the black schist and clay soils of the Agly valley situated at the northern border of the Roussillon. Harvested late in the season just when the grapes have begun to approach over-ripeness, results in a wine with a rich, palate-coating texture. Explosive nose promising great ripeness and considerable power gives over to lush, succulent, super-ripe spiced plum palate, with a hint of moscavado sugar. A very accessible rich, smooth red wine with no hard edges. Made primarily from 60 year-old Grenache vines growing on black schist and black clay marl soil, 25 miles from the Mediterranean sea.””” – Importer”””
