Côté Floral Blanc 2013 - Domaine Lafage, Languedoc Roussillon

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

« As its name indicates, this wine is like a bunch of flowers in a bottle. Shake carefully your glass and put your nose into it. Repeat the action several times; you will then be able to identify the multitude of flowers that compose this cuvee. The mouth is supple and fresh, and the aftertaste is long and flowered. Enjoy your wine! »
 

Terroir

Set in the foothills of the Pyrenees, the vineyards of the “Côté Floral” of the Domaine Lafage are cultivated on a clay-limestone subsoil. The clay brings freshness to the floor, a coolness that we also find in the wine, while its minerality comes from the lime stones. If you have the opportunity to go to the Domaine Lafage, you will probably notice the presence of tramontane, a wind from the North West, very strong in this region.

lecepage Grape variety

The combination of muscat with small white grains and viognier is surprising. The muscat with small grains is full of rosewood and litchi aromas. You can especially taste hints of fruits (orange) and flowers (jasmine, lemongrass and vervain). The corpulence of the viognier, fatter and creamier, hig hlights musk and spices aromas.

lemillesime Vintage

2013 was not a good vintage for most of the French wine-growing regions. However, in Languedoc Roussillon, the vintage 2013 was late but with high quality.

lerecoltant Winemaker

Jean Marc and Eliane Lafage are the owners of this domain that is six generations old and spread over 160 hectares. They are totally dedicated to this family owned company. Over the years, the cuvees got several rewards: 10 gold medals at the Concours Général de Paris, a national record! Their children, Léa – 7 years old – and Nicolas – 8 years old – are already very interested in being part of this adventure. We wish them as much success as their parents!
