2011 Domaine Lafage "Cuvee Centenaire" Cotes-du-Roussillon Blanc

SKU #1117845 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Lafage’s Grenache blend 2011 Cotes du Roussillon Cuvee Centenaire – this year incorporating a bit of Roussanne – displays primary juiciness of pineapple, grapefruit and honeydew melon garlanded with musky narcissus and peony and delivering all the invigoration and vibrancy you could ask for by way of tingling pineapple core; piquant lime peel; a light dusting of white pepper; and what I can stretch metaphors to call a crystalline, shimmering sense of mineral impingement. Look for this mind-boggling value to reward through at least 2015. (DS)  (1/ 2014)

An exquisite wine for the price! Beautiful balance, the quince and honeysuckle really come through, and finish with a velvety acid tinge of a lemon curd. A great everyday wine.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
