Jean-Marc Lafage Cote Est White 2017

"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." —importer

"Spice, citrus, white flowers and some seaside saltiness all emerge from the 2017 Cote d’Est, a deliciously fresh, clean, balanced white that represents a smoking value. This beauty has texture, freshness, and length. The blend is 50% Grenache Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, and 20% Roussanne all aged 4 months in tank on the lees, and it's ideal for drinking over the coming year. This cuvée is a joint venture with Eric Solomon and comes from east-facing vineyards planted on gentle slopes close to the Mediterranean, just a few kilometers inland from the sea near Canet-en-Roussillon." —
