DOMAINE DE VILLENEUVE

LVT 2018 r A biodynamic domaine, one of the earlier ones. Philippe de Blicquy, who revitalised this ordinary domaine, and converted it to organic practices, moved on to running a wine merchant and olive oil business in 2005. The son of Patrick Wallut, de Blicquy's partner in the domaine, now runs the estate - Stan Wallut. The Châteauneuf is not always truly stable, in the mould of some Nature Child wines, and the 2012 was bottled in July 2013, 10 months sooner than in the past. It had bounced back from a dodgy start by February 2019, rising to being a charming, typical 2012, **** wine. A good new Côtes du Rhône red, La Griffe, was introduced in 2009; it is authentic and full, the 2016 a **** wine. Magnums of a jolly Syrah-Grenache are produced with fellow organic growers David Reynaud of Domaine Les Bruyères at Crozes-Hermitage and Matthieu Barret of Domaine du Coulet at Cornas; it is called Les Trois Barbus - the three bearded ones, and the **** 2016 was a good party wine of high appeal.
