1. 2015 Lafage Cuvee Centenaire - $14.99 NET

Wine Advocate 92 Points

“The 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Centenaire is a racy, medium-bodied blend of mostly Grenache Blanc (and Gris), with 20% Roussanne. Crushed rocks, mint, lime and citrus blossom are some of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit and a clean, dry finish. It’s certainly an outstanding white to enjoy over the coming 2-3 years.”

2. 2015 Lafage Cote ‘Est Blanc - $12.99 NET

Wine Advocate 88 Points

Clean, 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.

3. 2015 Lafage Miraflors Blanc - $14.99 NET

Wine Advocate 90 Points

“"Another terrific white is the 2015 Vin de France Miraflors Blanc. A blend of close to equal parts Vermentino, Viognier, Muscat and Grenache Gris that was raised all in tank (with plenty of lees contact), it offers exotic aromas and flavors of mint, citrus peel and lemon to go with a medium-bodied, bright, fresh style on the palate that's ideal for a hot summer day."

4. 2015 Lafage IGP Cotes Catalanes Novellum - $14.99 / $12.99 SALE

Wine Advocate 90 Points

“A custom cuvee created by importer Eric Solomon, the 2015 IGP Cotes Catalanes Novellum is a smokin’ value that’s made from 100% Chardonnay that spent three months in tank (on Viognier lees) followed by three months in barrel. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it offers lots of orchard fruits, white peach, honeysuckle and a hint of vanilla to go with a medium to full-bodied, crisp, yet still textured and mouth-filling style on the palate. You can’t go wrong at the price and this is a terrific wine to enjoy over the coming year or two.”
