"A sensational value that needs to be tasted to be believed." - The Wine Advocate, 94 points

We read the extraordinary review below, in which The Wine Advocate's Jeb Dunnuck compares this wine to a Sine Qua Non Syrah (average price £300 a bottle!) and were naturally keen to taste it, so we tried to buy one from a UK retailer. To our considerable surprise, it wasn't imported, so we resolved the problem without delay and have set about importing it ourselves. It isn't in the UK yet

The Wine Advocate: "This wine is almost too good to be true. A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks (Grenache) and demi-muids (Syrah), the 2015 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes reminded me of a mini Syrah from California's Manfred Krankl (yes I just compared a $14 Syrah to Sine Qua Non). It's a ripe, sexy, heady beauty that exhibits a deep, purple color as well as killer notes of smoked meats, chocolate, blackberry and black raspberries. Deep, unctuous, open knit and layered, it continues to change in the glass, has a seamless and silky profile, and not a hard edge to be found. It's a sensational value that needs to be tasted to be believed. Drink it anytime over the coming 2-4 years." 94 points

Jancis Robinson.com (Tamlyn Currin): "Plum conserve. Rich and ripe. Structure and sweetness, bursting with delicious fruit. A wine of the sun and wind with all the intensity and concentration and balance that you’d want from Côtes Catalanes. Big hug of tannins. Drink 2017-2024." 17 points and 'Very Good Value'
