Domaine Lafage Cadireta is a new member of Lafage. This wine made from chardonnay, originating from the limestone soils, undergoes cold maceration for 10 days on the skins of the pressed viognier before fermentation. The wine partly ferments on new wood and undergoes battonage for 3 months. This gives this wine fullness, creaminess and an aromatic nose. The Cadireta has a beautiful scent of ripe tropical fruit, flowers and a hint of wood aging. The beautiful balance is striking in the taste and the tropical fruit returns and is supplemented with a hint of honey. A special glass of wine. Culinary partner for dishes with veal, mussels, salmon, chicken with curry or with creamy cheeses.

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.
