Grapes: 70% Mourvèdre and 30% Grenache Gris
Region: France, Languedoc Roussillon, Roussillon
Named after an old estate located in the heart of Domaine Lafage, Mas Miraflors, the Miraflors Rosé is sourced from old vines of Grenache Gris, nearing 80 years old, planted near the Mediterranean. Added to this is some Mourvedre that Jean-Marc planted here about 15 years ago. This a direct press rosé with the color coming from the skins of the pink Grenache Gris berries, and naturally, from the much darker Mourvedre. It is aged in tank for 4 months before bottling.

"Light in color, yet not in flavor, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Miraflors Rose offers terrific notes of white cherries, strawberries and rose petals in a medium-bodied, layered, impeccably balanced style that's just hard to resist. It doesn’t have the chiseled feel of the Grande Cuvee, but it offers just as much pleasure."
