Domaine Lafage Cote d'Est 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Côté d'Est, as the name suggests, comes from vineyards planted on the gentle slopes facing the Mediterranean just a few kilometers inland from the sea. Benefiting from the thermal breezes that refresh these vineyards every afternoon in the summer - which preserves a high level of natural acidity in the grapes - this is a lively blend of Grenache Blanc with smaller percentages of Chardonnay and Marsanne. Floral and aromatic, it is an excellent example of the open and friendly whites you can find all along the Catalan coast from Perpignan to the Penedès.

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

This wine - apparently produced by a favourite Roussillon house of Parker - does make for a wonderful, affordable wine. It has a nose of those over-perfumed kind of flowers like Wisteria or Clematis - perhaps Honeysuckle - but this is inviting (even perfect) for diurnal drinking patterns. The Rousanne component (at least 30%) needs time, but this is a great little wine on the palate, made viscous by the inclusion of Chardonnay. Apple, pear, and a touch of treacle and honey makes for the entry and finish (medium). Very good, and a bargain. 87.
