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 is a really nice French white blend of grenache, chardonnay and marsanne. Light, crisp, almost like a Napa sauvignon blanc with nice white grapefruit pith, lemon lime sherbet, good acidity and a medium finish. Great QPR.

Blend of Grenache blanc, Chardonnay, and Marianne offers citrusy notes of lime and grapefruit along with a fleshy fruitiness.

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

Crisp, racy & complex, with lovely hints of citrus, peach, melon & a flinty, mineral edge on the luscious finish. Outstanding effort! 93pts!

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.

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.

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.
