DOMAINE ALBIN JACUMIN, LA BEGUDE DES PAPES

LVT 2019 r 2019 wh Albin's mother is an Arnaud of Château Cabrières. He received his own vineyards from that estate when it was divided. The Domaine La Bégude des Papes is the original chunk of that - 10 ha - but more vineyards have come, and the name is now Domaine Albin Jacumin. His cellar was built in 2007. The house style is for elegance in both red and white. The La Bégude des Papes red is shapely; the 2015 captured the vintage well - it was muscular, and well-defined, a ****(*) wine, the 2019 a stylish **** wine with a feel of vitality in it. There is an occasional top cuvée called A Aimé, based on 1930s Grenache on two small plots on Les Marines near the village, hand bottled. The ****(*) was rich and solid, to wait 10 years with.

The white, ripe but also fresh, has made marked progress since 2014, the 2017 a sophisticated, graceful *****(*), a real achievement in such a hot vintage, while the 2019 was a **** wine of ping and detail
