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.

Lafagersquo;s 2008 Cote Est (note the slightly different spelling of the name from previous years) comes from Chardonnay, Marsanne, and old Grenache Blanc vines on cobbled soils near the coast, blended with the fruit of centenarian Grenache Gris vines on Pyrenean schist. The wine is aged in tank on its fine lees and the result is not only irresistibly delicious but truly complex. Orange and lime zest, white pepper, narcissus, fennel, and mint in the nose lead to a juicy, bright palate with musky floral perfume and a shimmering interchange of citrus with wet stone, salt, iodine, and other ineffable mineral elements. This will fascinate and refresh in equal measure as well as fiendishly insinuate itself into your culinary regimen over the next 9ndash;12 months, and could also be held a bit longer without fear.

The Lafage 2007 Cote drsquo;Est (already reviewed in issue 178) is from Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Chardonnay, and a bit of Marsanne, some grown near the ocean, some at high elevation near the Spanish frontier. Surprisingly, the blend is assembled as juice (not as wine) following a 12ndash;15 day super-cold settling period for each variety and lot. Pungently redolent of toasted grain, citrus oil, pineapple, almond extract, and narcissus, rich and honeyed on the palate, with persistently wafting floral notes and pungent counterpoint but no bitterness, this finishes with haunting smokiness and honeyed length as well as a generous measure of sheer refreshment. Enjoy it until you can get hold of the 2008 (which I shall in time to review in our August issue).

An exceptional quality white wine produced in southern Francersquo;s Roussillon region, chosen and imported by Eric Solomon, an importer who chooses ldquo;top-notch winesrdquo; 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.

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.

A perennial winner, this aromatic white has a nose of fresh tangerines that hints at the small amount of Muscat in the blend. Grenache Blanc (61%) and Chardonnay (27%) make up the majority of the wine and create a full-flavored yet soft wine that would be wonderful with many types of lighter fish, turkey, or even a glazed ham.
