Côté d'Est, as the name suggests, comes from vineyards planted on the gentle slopes facing the Mediterranean just a few kilometers inland from the sea. Benefiting from the thermal breezes that refresh these vineyards every afternoon in the summer - which preserves a high level of natural acidity in the grapes - this is a lively blend of Grenache Blanc with smaller percentages of Chardonnay and Marsanne. Floral and aromatic, it is an excellent example of the open and friendly whites you can find all along the Catalan coast from Perpignan to the Penedès.

Wine AdvocateClean, crisp and lively, with exotic notes of orange blossom, cherry blossom and hints of saline-like minerality, the 2016 Cote d'Est is medium-bodied, fresh and lively, with a clean, delicious style that will be versatile on the dinner table. This cuvee comes from the eastern portion of the Roussillon, just off the coast of the Mediterranean, and is a blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 30% Chardonnay and the rest Roussanne, aged on lees in tank. It's a terrific value.
