LVT 2018 r 2018 wh 2011 rosé Good, supple fruit these days in the reds, wines of stature. The classic Châteauneuf red was **** in 2015, a wine of true virtues, and also in 2017. Two recent amusements have been the introduction of a 1,000 bottle Châteauneuf-du-Pape made from 100% Vaccarèse, called Forget me Not, a **** wine in 2018 that was correctly floral [not cheap, though], and a 600 bottle pure Cinsault, the 2018 a ***(*) wine. The ****(*) 2017 Châteauneuf Château des Fines Roches white [the classic wine] stood out in a tricky hot year for its class and balance. The family also own Château du Bois de la Garde nearby, which provides very sound, consistent Côtes du Rhône and Villages wines.
