The 2015 shows a “Deep, vivid pink. Powerful, mineral-accented red berry and orange pith aromas pick up a subtle hint of succulent herbs with aeration. Juicy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering juicy red fruit and anise flavors and a suave floral overtone. Closes smooth and spicy, with an echo of dusty minerals and very good persistence.”

Blend:
60% Grenache
10% Cinsault
5% (each) Syrah, Carignan, Clairette, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Mourvèdre.

Background
The ‘Roc-Epine’ part of ‘Domaine Lafond Roc-Epine’ has an interesting story behind. Please, get comfy…Comfy? Good. When Jean-Pierre started the estate in 1970 he was, and still is, a horse racing enthusiast (the good kind!) and felt that he had to include his favorite horse Roquepine somewhere in the name of his winery. Not sure if he could use the actual name of the horse he decided give it a twist of Provençal and changed it to Roc-Epine. The crest you see on the label is actually the crest found on the jockey that used to ride Roquepine! It has absolutely no link to the Lafond family!
