Opinión de los críticos
Lafage works with the local co-op to produce this wine, which spends winters there before being moved to demi-muids at the winery. The 2017 Arqueta is a medium to full-bodied blend of 45% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 25% Carignan, boasting showy blueberry and cherry fruit and a hint of the brininess for which the Collioure appellation is known. Overall, it's firm, fresh and elegant, but remember, it has six months or so of time in older demi-muids ahead of it. - Joe Czerwinski.
One of my favorite wines from Lafage is his release from Collioure, always one of the most exotic, singular wines in the portfolio. The 2017 Collioure Arqueta is brilliant, brilliant stuff, offering classic Collioure minerality and shrimp broth-like characteristics as well as loads of red and black fruits, spice, and savory, floral notes. Drink this medium-bodied, elegant, silky beauty over the coming 4-6 years. I finished my notes with “love this wine!”
