Domaine Lafage, Cote d'Est 2019
Côtes Catalanes, Roussillon, France
Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay, Rolle
"Beautiful, the 2018 Cote D'Est checks in as a blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, and 20% Rolle (aka Vermentino). It has an almost Viognier-like character of white flowers, honeyed peach, and brioche, with a medium-bodied, layered, textured style on the palate. It's also a smoking value."~J.D.
