Côté 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 old vine Grenache Blanc with Chardonnay and Rolle. 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.

Beautiful, the 2018 Cote D'Est checks in as a blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, and 20% Rolle (aka Vermentino). It has an almost Viognier-like character of white flowers, honeyed peach, and brioche, with a medium-bodied, layered, textured style on the palate. It's also a smoking value.

A screwcapped blend of 35% each Chardonnay and Grenache, plus 30% Rolle (Vermentino), the 2018 Cote d'Est is a fun, lemon- and pineapple-scented quaffer. Light to medium-bodied, with a slightly chalky feel and crisp finish, it should be consumed over the next several months.
