Wine Expert Note:

The Domaine Lafage Tessellae Vieilles Vignes Carignan is a remarkable wine that showcases the unique characteristics of the Carignan grape variety. With its deep ruby color, this wine immediately captivates the eye. On the nose, it offers an enticing bouquet of ripe blackberries, cherries, and plums, accompanied by subtle hints of spice and earthiness. These aromas are further enhanced by delicate floral notes, adding a touch of elegance to the overall profile. Upon tasting, the wine reveals a full-bodied and well-structured palate. The rich fruit flavors of blackberry and plum are beautifully balanced with the wine's firm tannins, providing a harmonious and lingering finish. The oak aging process contributes to the wine's complexity, imparting subtle vanilla and toasty notes. The Domaine Lafage Tessellae Vieilles Vignes Carignan is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but also has the potential for further aging. It pairs exceptionally well with grilled meats, hearty stews, and aged cheeses.
