Overview

A joint venture between Eric Solomon and Jean-Marc Lafage, Tessellae Old Vines is assembled from vineyards on the black schist and clay-limestone soils that Jean-Marc Lafage farms near Maury in the Upper Agly valley. A blend of Grenache (40%), Syrah (40%), and Mourvèdre (20%), it is harvested by hand, fermented for a month after a short pre-fermentation maceration, and aged entirely in concrete tanks.
