Made from 70-year-old vines, JM Lafage's Châteauneuf-style grenache/syrah/mourvèdre blend is an absolute joy and sure to win friends. Bursting with intense black fruit, it is rich, expansive and full-bodied with an enveloping, luxurious texture. For a wine with such concentration, warmth and presence, there is also remarkable complexity and purity - notes of violets and exotic spice enhancing the concentrated black fruits and ripe tannins.

Reviews of previous vintage:
"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." 93 points - Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

An interesting blend which has resulted in a rich fullbodied red wine with an intense mixture of flavours. Ideal for everyday drinking in these difficult times, either on its own or with solid food. I look forward to trying the 2018 vintage when it is on offer. Good value at the price
