LVT 2018 r 2018 wh Stéphane Usseglio seeks finesse in his reds, so has gone back to the simplicity of concrete, and dropped large old barrels. The domaine is now organic and biodynamic, and is moving along extremely well under his skilled hand. The Tradition red was a ****(*) STGT wine in 2016. There was an excellent Cuvée Impériale in 2013, and a fabulous one in 2016, a ****** beauty. It is based on 1901-02 Grenache from sandy soils north of the village - hence the serenity. The other special wine, La Part des Anges, is more robust; it is 70% early 1970s Mourvèdre, a regular **** performer that in 2017 carried Bandol freshness, Châteauneuf-du-Pape strength, while the 2018 was woollybully wine, on the wild side, a lot of pumping heart in it.. There are improved white wines as well here.
