Domaine LaFage Cuvee Nicolas Grenache Noir 2013
The 2013 vintage of the Cuvee Nicolas Vieilles Vignes is made from 100% Grenache grapes. The wine was aged for 6 months in oak barrels on its lees (spent yeast) before it was bottled unfiltered.

Wine AdvocateAnother superb value, the 2013 Cuvee Nicolas Vieilles Vignes is 100% Grenache that spent six months in barrel, on lees, prior to being bottle unfiltered. It offers up a forward, mid-weight, sexy feel in its kirsch, dried herbs, earth and spring-flower-driven bouquet. While I prefer the 2012 (surprisingly), this medium-bodied, forward and well-made beauty will drink nicely for 3-5 years.
