20 Cotes Catalanes Blanc Domaine Lafage Nur Im 6er Karton L 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Super crisp and tank-fermented, this racy white is bursting with citrus, white flowers and minerals. Juicy on the palate, dry but ripe with good apricot and yellow peach fruit character.

The Lafage Estate is expanded over a little more than 200 hectares, including stretches of heath and pine, 138 hectares of which is cultivated for wine-making. The dwelling of the manor is an ancient stone-built farmhouse located next to the vineyard-fringed road between Perpignan, the former capital of the Kings of Majorca, and the Mediterranean seashore. Hugging the 80 hectares of marine-land, where the now archaeological site of Villarnau was once a mediaeval village, the vineyards of the Lafage Estate dominate the surrounding grapevine. It provides spectacular views of the Albères, an extension of the Pyrenees mountain range, which forms a natural border between France and Spain before plunging into the blue of the Mediterranean. At the entrance of the Estate, a boutique offers wine-tasting and colourful commentaries to wine-lovers passing by. Read less

Cote est 2010 is available for 7.99 at trader joes in the boston area. Great fruit, acid and almost tastes like if viognier and torrontes had been mixed. One of the winter wine deals of the yr

Roussillon, FranceLafage Cote Est Catalan is a delightful white wine gem from the Roussillon wine region of southwestern France. The wine's official appellation is Vin de Pays des Cotes Catalanes. Deep in this Catalan region of southwestern France, Domaine Lafage blends juicy, aromatic wines that deliver the rare combination of distinctiveness and affordability. Although only in his thirties, Jean-Marc Lafage already has almost 15 years of world-class winemaking to his credit. The Lafage Estate covers 200 hectares near Perpignan, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees separating France and Spain. Robert Parker rated this wine 90 points! Lafage Cote Est Catalan is an unoaked blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Marsanne. Super crisp and tank-fermented on its lees, this racy white is bursting with a stunning perfume of dried apricots, honeyed citrus and white flowers. The lovely aromatics are followed by a crisp, elegant, slightly more textured, medium-bodied white with wonderful purity, freshness and length. It is long and flavorful on the finish.Enjoy Lafage Cote Est over the next 2-3 years with roast chicken, grilled snapper, steamers, Cobb salad and goat cheese.

The Lafage 2010 Côté Est — comprising, as usual, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Chardonnay, and a bit of Marsanne — is delightfully scented with honeysuckle and iris, and its palate combination of juicy lime with the bite of cress, tangerine rind, and persistent inner-mouth florality put me in mind of some top-notch, lighter Gruner Veltliner. In fact, this harbors 13% alcohol yet finishes with a striking sense of levity, not to mention combining subtle but alluring textural enrichment via the lees with refreshing vivacity and intriguing, mouthwatering hints of iodine and salt. Look for it to prove phenomenally versatile over the next 12–18 months. As explained in issue 183, this blend is assembled as juice (not as wine) following a 12–15 day super-cold but gentle settling period for each variety and lot — just one of the many examples of wholly unorthodox Lafage methods resulting in something extraordinary, here above all in terms of uncanny balance as well as improbable price-quality rapport.

From the Catalan region bordering France and Spain Lafage’s Côté Est is a soft aromatic people-pleasing white that drinks as well at the table as it does on the patio. A blend of Grenache Chardonnay and Marsanne perfumed with white flowers pear and citrus notes. The mouthfeel is fresh and vibrant but not sharp and the finish is crisp and clean.
