LVT 2019 r 2016 rosé 2019 wh Modern approach, accessible wines from the draining soils of the South-East of the appellation towards Sorgues. Quality has been high and consistent recently. The Châteauneuf white was very good from 2012 to 2014, with 2018 a revival into ****(*) - great with sea bass, daurade, and aged Comté cheese. Both the 2014 and the 2016 Châteauneuf Tradition reds were **** wines. The range now covers as many as six different Châteauneuf reds with different blends, including the 100% Mourvèdre Grand Clos red and the 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache gris Coteau Brûlé red. The 2018 H to H Châteauneuf red, named in full as Homage to Heritage, was a most interesting blend of 50% Grenache noir, 30% Grenache gris, 20% Syrah: a ****(*) wine of inner strength and appealing vigour. Whole bunches are fermented these days. The 2017 Grand Vin, half Grenache, half Syrah, was the top 2017 at ****(*). They are all bottled within one year after the harvest.
Their Côtes du Rhônes come from very good alluvial, garrigue soils at Sérignan-du-Comtat. It is a good range, headed by the Côtes du Rhônes Villages Les Garrigues that carries local imprint, is a properly structured wine, the 2019 a full, fun **** wine.
