    1 x Domaine Lafage Côté Est

    Côté Est is a blend of White Grenache, Chardonnay and Roussanne grown on cool sites facing the rising sun, fermented without oak. Spice, citrus, white flower aromas, with some seaside saltiness. A deliciously fresh, clean, balanced white wine. This beauty has texture, freshness, and length. The perfect Summer wine!
    Rated 90/100 by Wine Advocate.


    1 x Domaine Lafage "Nicolas" Grenache Noir
    Although only in his thirties, Jean-Marc Lafage already has more than 15 years of worldclass winemaking behind him. Domaine Lafage is his family estate and is regarded as one of the best wineries in Languedoc-Roussillon. Benefiting from a warm, dry climate, the estate is farmed organically. 

    1 x Domaine Lafage Miraflors Rosé
    The Cotes du Roussillon Miraflors Rose offers lots of framboise, strawberry and rose petal characteristics in medium-bodied, juicy, gorgeously quaffable style. Sourced from old vines of Grenache Gris, nearing 80 years old, planted near the Mediterranean. Added to this is some Mourvedre that Jean-Marc planted here about 15 years ago. This a direct press rose with the color coming from the skins of the pink Grenache Gris berries, and naturally, from the much darker Mourvedre.

    Variety Description

    Grenache Gris

    Grenache or Garnacha is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It ripens late, so it needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain, where the grape probably originated, Sardinia, the south of France, and California. It is generally spicy, berry-flavoured and soft on the palate with a relatively high alcohol content. Wines made from Grenache tend to lack acid, tannin and color, and is usually blended with other varieties such as Syrah, Carignan, Tempranillo and Cinsaut.

    Chardonnay

    Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety used to make white wine. It originated in the Burgundy wine region of eastern France but is now grown wherever wine is produced, from England to New Zealand.The Chardonnay grape itself is very neutral, with many of the flavors commonly associated with the grape being derived from such influences as terroir and oak. It is vinified in many different styles, from the lean, crisply mineral wines of Chablis, France to New World wines with oak, and tropical fruit flavours.

    Mourvèdre

    Mourvèdre (also known as Mataró or Monastrell) is a red wine grape variety that is grown in many regions around the world including the Rhône and Provence regions of France, Spain, California and the Australian regions of South Australia and New South Wales. In addition to making red varietal wines, Mourvèdre is a prominent component in "GSM" (Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre) blends. The variety is also used to make rosé and port-style fortified wines. Mourvèdre tends to produce tannic wines that can be high in alcohol.

    Country Description

    France

    Practically all the most famous grape varieties used in the world's wines are French varieties, and wine is produced all throughout France. France is the second largest wine producer in the world after Italy. The wines produced range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally to more modest wines usually only seen within France. In many respects, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity, as evidenced by different grape varieties, production methods and different classification systems in the various regions. Some of the more famous wine regions in France include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire, Chablis and the Rhône valley.

    Region Description

    Languedoc-Roussillon

    Languedoc-Roussillon wine, including the vin de pays labeled Vin de Pays d'Oc, is produced in southern France. While "Languedoc" can refer to a specific historic region of France and Northern Catalonia, usage since the 20th century (especially in the context of wine) has primarily referred to the northern part of the Languedoc-Roussillon région of France, an area which spans the Mediterranean coastline from the French border with Spain to the region of Provence. The area has around 700,000 acres (2,800 km2) under vines and is the single biggest wine-producing region in the world, being responsible for more than a third of France's total wine production.
