In a nutshell:
An intense, fresh and minerally southern French white from the Catalan coast near Perpignan.
Often considered red wine territory, the impressive Domaine Lafage also make some top notch whites from their vineyards around Perpignan and the foothills of the Pyrenees. This one made with 80% Grenache Gris and 20% Roussanne from vineyards near the sea in Canet en Roussillon certainly deserves plenty of attention. Mostly aged in stainless steel, 30% spends time in new French oak barrel which gives extra texture and complexity. On the nose it's full of citrus, peachy and floral aromas which follows nicely on the palate together with a subte hint of spice. Medium bodied, it has a good length and rounds off with gentle, fresh finish.
When to drink:
With it ripe, round flavours it makes good stand-alone drinking and also goes nicely with grilled fish, or poultry dishes.
