Our best-selling internet offering just got better! The Bastide Miraflors from Domaine Lafage has led online sales by a wide margin for two vintages running, and the release of this fantastic new 2015 vintage raises the quality bar to a new level. This is one of my favorite wines, one of which I never grow tired, and this is my favorite version to date. I just don’t see how it can get any better. This wine sells out over and over from year to year, and we are thrilled to be able to offer you an opportunity to experience this astonishing value, for the first time if you’ve missed out on prior vintages, or to resupply your cellars if you're running low. Such brilliant wine being made available at such a ridiculously low price is a combination of quality and value that makes this a must-have. Buy it by the case!

A custom cuvée for European Cellars and a joint project between Eric Solomon and Jean-Marc Lafage, Bastide Miraflors is a blend created from Grenache grown on rocky, alluvial clay soils resembling those of the Rhône Valley combined with Syrah grown on schist in the village of Maury. After a long maceration of six weeks the wine ages for 12 months in concrete (the Grenache) and 600L French oak demi-muids (the Syrah).

One of the most sought-after winemakers of Europe, Jean-Marc applies his expertise with Southern European varietals to several top estates in both France and Spain. However, his best work is at home at this estate in the hills of the Roussillon with his wife, Eliane, also a highly accomplished winemaker.

It’s always nice to be able to find a Holiday Unicorn for you this time of year, and if you’re a wine lover that’s pretty much what this is. Aromatic, rich and complex at an unbelievable price for what you get, this has my vote for Wine Buy of the Year. Enjoy!

This wine is almost too good to be true. A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks (Grenache) and demi-muids (Syrah), the 2015 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes reminded me of a mini Syrah from California's Manfred Krankl (yes I just compared a $14 Syrah to Sine Qua Non). It's a ripe, sexy, heady beauty that exhibits a deep, purple color as well as killer notes of smoked meats, chocolate, blackberry and black raspberries. Deep, unctuous, open knit and layered, it continues to change in the glass, has a seamless and silky profile, and not a hard edge to be found. It's a sensational value that needs to be tasted to be believed. Drink it anytime over the coming 2-4 years."- Jeb Dunnuck
