This is a wine you can’t not buy. You’re reading this because you like wine. In most cases you like red wine. I’m betting you like good red wine. And you like a bargain, I assume? Well, you can’t not buy this wine because it is not just a good but a GREAT red wine and at a bargain price! I have been waiting for this wine to be released for what feels like forever, and I am sooooo excited that it is finally here I am absolutely mental. Jean-Marc Lafage hits it out of the park every time he steps up to the plate, as evidenced by the other Tessellae - the Old Vine Carignan that we‘ve offered before and from multiple vintages, as well as our best-selling southern French wine of all time, the Lafage Bastide Miraflors. We shouldn’t simply follow a wine we like, but remember to follow the winemaker of a wine we like, because once they achieve success they tend to get happy feet and take their magic to different places, thereby giving us more wines to like.

The 2015 vintage in France produced outstanding wines in seemingly every region; in Burgundy, in Bordeaux, in the Rhone Valley and the South; everywhere we've looked. We have every right to expect to experience incredible wines from expensive high-profile bottlings, but it’s when the high tide raises all boats that we really win. While Jean-Marc has a proven history of producing compelling wines at bargain-basement prices even in challenging years, what he does in a vintage as ideal as 2015 provides us an opportunity to stock up on a phenomenal wine for a song.

I’ve profiled Jean-Marc probably a dozen times over the last few of years, so the story doesn’t really need to be told again. Let it suffice to say that a wine associated with Jean-Marc Lafage as the winemaker is as close as you will come to a guarantee of excellence.

An incredible value from Jean-Marc Lafage is the 2015 Tessellae Old Vines Grenache Syrah Mourvedre, which is 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre from 70-year-old vines and brought up all in concrete tank. A ripe, expansive, full-bodied and undeniably sexy red that has beautiful notes of kirsch liqueur, blueberries, pepper and violets, it has ripe and present tannin, straight up fabulous purity and a great finish. This is another one of those wines where you just have to tell yourself you spent more than you actually did. The wine really is this good.” - Jeb Dunnuck

We’ve secured a fresh parcel of this crazy value, but these limited-availability Eric Solomon selections we offer always go away fast. That’s important to remember, since this is a wine you can’t not buy.
