Robert Parker - "Made from an eccentric blend of 50% Grenache Blanc (from 100+-year-old vines), 30% Chardonnay and 20% Marsanne aged on its lees in stainless steel, the 2011 Cote d'Est exhibits a stunning perfume of dried apricots, honeyed citrus and white flowers. The lovely aromatics are followed by a crisp, elegant, slightly more textured, medium-bodied white with wonderful purity, freshness and length. Not only is this dazzling wine remarkably inexpensive, but there are over 10,000 cases imported to the United States. It needs to be drunk in the first 12-18 months following its release."
