An exceptional quality white wine produced in southern France's Roussillon region, chosen and imported by Eric Solomon, an importer who chooses "top-notch wines" from small producers. This is a fresh white with an aromatic nose that hints at the small amount of the Muscat grape in the blend. Grenache Blanc and Chardonnay make up the majority and create a full-flavored yet soft wine that is a perfect summer accompaniment to fish or light pasta courses.
This light, refreshing wine offers relief to the summer heat. It opens with abundant melon and pear flavors. Its finish is tangy with just the right touch of acidity, making it a perfect complement to seafood dishes.
Hailing from Roussillon in France, this blend of the indigenous Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeo is light, crisp, and racy. The orange citrus flavor and delightful floral aroma are happy reminders that warm summer evenings aren't too far off.
Very intriguing flavors, and delicious sweet/tart taste going on. This is a great food wine, offering the acidity and structure from a blend of White Grenache and Chardonnay. Perfect for sipping on its own, or with a light lunch of lobster salad and crab cakes.
If the Lafage-Solomon performance of Novellum seems incredible, their 2007 Côte d'Est - a blend very different from last year's, with Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, and Chardonnay as well as a small amount of Marsanne - strains credibility even further. Pungently redolent of toasted grain, citrus oil, pineapple, almond extract, and narcissus, it is rich and honeyed on the palate, with persistently wafting floral notes and pungent counterpoint but no bitterness. It finishes with haunting smokiness and honeyed length as well as a generous measure of sheer refreshment. Enjoy it over the coming year.
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.
Hailing from Roussillon in France, this blend of the indigenous Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeo is light, crisp, and racy. The orange citrus flavor and delightful floral aroma are happy reminders that warm summer evenings arenrsquo;t too far off.
