The Lafage family has been growing grapes and making wines in the Roussillon since 1798. Winemaker Jean-Marc Lafage was raised in the village of Maury, where Château Saint-Roch winery is located. He made his first wines in Maury as a teenager under the guidance of his grandfather.The Saint-Roch vineyard is in the heart of Roussillon, in the south of France, close to the Spanish border. Halfway between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean Sea, the Queribus Cathar castle, set on a steep cliff, overlooks the valley and the mosaic of Jean-Marc Lafage's vineyards at Saint-Roch.

Tasting Note from the winery:
"Flaxen color tinged with green highlight leads to aromas of lime zest and flavors of ripe pear. A medium-bodied white
made with great precision. Rich, fresh mouthfeel and a long finish. Pair with shellfish, sushi, poultry or vegetarian cuisine".

93 points"A blend of 60% Grenache Gris and 40% Roussanne brought up in concrete and demi-muid, the 2020 Cotes Du Roussillon Old Vines Blanc reveals a light gold hue to go with beautiful dried pineapple, crushed rock, spice, and white flower-like aromas and flavors. It's rich, textured, and beautifully balanced, with richness, freshness, and a great finish. It's going to keep for 2-3 years, if not longer".
