The Miraflors Rose consists of Mourvedre, with a smaller part of Grenache. The wine comes from terraced plots along the coast and, aged in concrete, is decidedly Provencal in style with juicy, pure strawberry, citrus, orange peel and ample minerality and a medium-bodied, distinctive profile on the palate. Hard to resist, with fabulous purity. Executed in a beautiful bottle with a glass stopper. This rose has received no less than 90 Parker points.

Voted best summer wine in the Telegraaf

Jean-Marie Lafage is a descendant of a family of winegrowers and Oenology was therefore the logical choice to study. During his education he met Eliane and the love for wine grew into ... a marriage and shared wine experiences on all wine continents (South Africa, California, Chile, Australia). The urge to own a domain takes shape when Jean-Marie takes over the family domain.

The Lafage domain extends over 200h, of which 138h are planted. Between the vineyards you can enjoy the spectacular foothills of the Pyrenees. Nestled between "mar imuntanya" this produces beautiful summer wines. The plots are located both at sea level and at an altitude of 400m. Both are exposed to very hot summers, harsh winters and have to withstand a very poor “marbro-schisteux” soil. The infamous Tramontane wind provides the necessary cooling. The productivity of the terroir is deliberately kept low (15 to 25 hl/ha). At 400m above sea level, anchored in a schist-marble soil , these plots provide a perfect place to mature for the Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Marsanne and Muscat grape.

The glass cork makes it a beautiful water carafe after drinking


Dagblad De Telegraaf published the results of the election of the best summer wines of 2015 on Saturday 16 May. After a strict pre-selection, all participating wines were blind tasted by a very expert tasting panel including Ronald and Sjoerd de Groot (Perswijn), Johan Kragtwijk ( Sommelier of the year, restaurant Karel V), Pieter Nijdam (De Telegraaf) and Marga van Winsen (Rhone Value Wines). The 2014 Lafage Miraflors finished in third place among the rosés.
