The Lafage Muscat de Rivesaltes has a brilliant, golden yellow color. The recognizable muscat scents waft from the glass: mainly grapes, roses, dried apricot and plums. Full and ripe taste with many notes of dried fruit (apricots, raisins) and caramel. Richly scented and mild in taste. Slightly spicy with a little sweetness, lychees and fruit cocktail. Dessert or aperitif wine, also delicious with blue cheese.

Jean-Marie Lafage is a descendant of a wine-growing family and Oenology was the logical choice of study. During his training he meets Eliane and his love for wine grows into ... a marriage and joint wine experiences on all wine continents (South Africa, California, Chile, Australia). The urge for their own domain takes shape when Jean-Marie takes over the family domain.

The Lafage domain extends over 200 hours, of which 138 hours are planted. Enjoy the spectacular foothills of the Pyrenees among the vineyards. Nestled between “mar i muntanya” this produces beautiful summer wines. The plots are located both at sea level and at an altitude of 400m. Both are exposed to very hot summers, severe winters and have to brave a very poor 'marbro-schisteux' soil. The infamous Tramontane wind provides the necessary cooling. The productivity of the terroir is deliberately kept low (15 to 25 hl/ha). At 400m above sea level, anchored in a schist-marble soil , these plots provide a perfect place to ripen for the Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Marsanne and Muscat grape.
