LVT  2019 r  2015  wh  This is part of the Boisset empire, established in the wonderful setting of the Abbey of Bonpas overlooking the Durance river, just south of the Avignon Sud autoroute exit. These have been hmm wines - in the past there was a very oaked Vacqueyras, but in 2016 a 10% only oaked Vacqueyras red called Grand Cartulaire was issued, the result being a **** from that excellent vintage; this has been followed with ***(*) wines in 2017 and 2018, so things are on the rise there. There is a sound to good Gigondas, the Sieur Alphonse red, with another Gigondas, the Grand Prieur **** in 2018 - an elegant, enjoyable wine. The Lubéron Bonpas blanc was a firm, fresh ***(*) wine in 2015, while the 2019 Côtes du Rhône Réserve de Bonpas red was a juicy w.o.w. wine pre-bottling. Improvement here is welcome.
