96 POINTS: Jeb Dunnuck
Made from 40+ year old vines comprosing 60% Syrah, Grenache and Mourvédre.
This Cuvee is a selection from the very best terroirs of Domaine Lafage - with the vineyards planted over 40 years ago. The soils are granite and gneiss in the valley of Agly. Marnes mixed with tautavel gres, Schistes and black marnes from cretace on the areas of Maury and Lator de France.

"One of the finest wines I've tasted from the estate is unquestionably the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Fundacio, which is 60% Syrah from Maury with the balance Mourvédre and Grenache, vinified and aged in small barrels. Full-bodied, incredibly pure, elegant, and silky, it boasts awesome notes of créme de cassis, black olives, leafy herbs, and subtle gamey, salty nuances. It's a rich, powerful wine yet just glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It should keep for a decade."
