Domaine Lafage Cotes du Roussillon 'Cuvée Centenaire' Blanc

From 100 year old Grenache Blanc vines. From pebbly hills refreshed by cool sea breezes. Aged in oak. Ripe pear, honey, citrus and nutty oak. It's fairly crisp for Grenache Blanc with lovely citrus, hints of pineapple with lime and lemon, minerally with toasty,nutty oak. It's a style I increasingly like that has the richness and spice of Grenache but is fresh and balanced with oak adding complexity.
"a year-in, year-out, incredible value, the 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Centenaire Blanc comes from 100-year-old Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris vines (with some Roussanne) that grow within sight of the Mediterranean Sea. Just bottled, but certainly no worse for it, it exhibits beautiful minerality along with a white currant, citrus blossom and melon-nuanced bouquet. Pure, elegant and classically styled, with building richness and plenty of focus on the palate, it has to be one of the best values in white wine in the world today. Don’t miss it! "
