Domaine Lafond

Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016

Decided to try some 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape, to see how they are coming along. At this stage, Lafond is hedonistic, wonderful, sit back, sip and enjoy. — 9 months ago

Domaine de la Mordorée

La Dame Rousse Tavel Rosé Blend 2018

Another blockbuster Tavel from Morderée. The 2018 is as delicious as it gets and this is tasting better in 2020 than it did on arrival last year. I’d always attributed the unique zesty and pungent flavors in this wine with the tiny amounts of uniquely Tavel blending grapes... perhaps that remains true, but this wine is mostly Grenache 60%, with Cinsault/Syrah/Mourvèdre at 10% each, and Clairette/Bourboulenc at 5% each. Whatever the blend, they’ve nailed this one. Sadly, it’s quite pricey at over $30. Now if I could locate some LaFond in my area, we could crown a Tavel champion, but this one will be hard to beat. — 2 years ago

Domaine Lafond

Roc-Epine Tavel Rosé Grenache Blend 2019

Aroma of watermelon candy and jolly rancher now, a bit simple. Bubblegum, lots of Tavel texture on the palate with a bit of residual sweetness and just enough minerality to balance. Simple and fun; don’t have enough experience to say how this will develop, but I’d imagine based on texture and minerality some tertiary notes will come and be welcome… — 8 months ago
