Domaine Lafage Cote d'Est Blanc 2011

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. A wonderful blend of 45% Grenache Blanc, 48% Grenache Gris, 7% Macabeo

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

A family owned Estate comprising of 22 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape and 11 hectares in the Cotes du Rhone in France. Andre Brunel makes this wine from his Estate grown grapes. Brunel's hallmark is fruit emphasis with balanced tannins and the fruit flavours lingering through to a long finish. Grapes : 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mouvedre Region : France / Rhone / Cotes du Rhone AOC Maker : Andre Brunel Notes : Spicy, with very juicy ripe fruit showing great structure, ripe tannins and perfect balance. Delicious and approachable Rhone style red wine. Serve : At 14 - 16c with all roast meats, grilled meats, barbecues and hearty stews.. ABV : 13% Suitable for Vegetarians
