Famille Lafage 2016 Miraflors, Côtes du Roussillon (France)

 

Bought • Wine and Cheese Place, 7435 Forsyth Boulevard, in June for $14.99

Description • This elegant, barely pink vin gris earned a well-deserved 91 points from Wine Enthusiast. Its sleek and graceful frosted bottle reflects the beautifully balanced, elegant wine that it holds. A blend of 60 percent grenache gris, 30 percent mourvèdre and 10 percent carignan, this is a silky, smooth and very clean wine that delivers delicious layers of red berries with floral aromatics. This is an easy-to-drink, hard-to-resist wine that even won over a friend who claimed to dislike rosés. The Miraflors makes for a lovely aperitif or a pair with light foods.
