Another new cuvée from the indefatigable Jean-Marc Lafage, Roubials is primarily Grenache with 10-20% Syrah added to the final blend. All are grown on the black schist and clay soils of the Agly valley situated at the northern border of the Roussillon. Harvested late in the season just when the grapes have begun to approach over-ripeness, results in a wine with a rich, palate-coating texture.

Matured entirely in demi-muids, the Grenache-dominated (90%) 2016 Roubials boasts knockout aromas of crushed stones, dried spices and black cherries. The Grenache shows its base in black schist, retaining structure and silkiness. Despite being full-bodied and enormously ripe, this finishes long, with a surprising sense of elegance.
