Domaine Lefarge Cote’ EST 2008 Howard Hewitt November 23, 2009 Tasting Notes 2 Comments Here is a French blend of Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay, and Marsanne that is drinkable, affordable, and great value for the price point. The wine has a beautiful light straw color with a nose of light citrus and flowers. This Eric Soloman selection is a beautiful “bang for your buck” white wine. It holds up nicely to food and would go great at a cocktail parties. This is one of the best value whites I’ve found this year! WHO Jean Marc Lefarge WHAT Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay, Marsanne WHERE France, Cotes’ Catalanes WHEN 2008 HOW MUCH $10.99 Pingback: Domaine Lefarge Cote' EST 2008 : PALATE PRESS | Cote today() http://www.thewinemule.blogspot.com The Wine Mule That’s “Jean-Marc Lafage” not “Jean-Marie Lefarge.” Yes, it’s a very good value for the money; the nose suggests sweetness, but what you get on the palate is nice herbs and fruit and a surprising amount of mineral character on the finish. There’s a red, also, called “Cote Sud,” that blends syrah, grenache, and cabernet sauvignon, with lots of black fruit and earthy character.
