LVT 2018 r 2018  wh  Natacha is the sister of Yann Chave; the name Aléofane has literary origins. She pursued philosophy studies at Grenoble, and worked in the PTT, the French Post Office. In her mid-30s, she made her first wine, the Saint-Joseph, in 2004. The style is modern, and quality has been bounding ahead recently. The 2015 Crozes-Hermitage red, for example, was a well structured ****(*) wine. Natacha launched a white Crozes from young Marsanne and Roussanne in 2012 - good elegance, and local features in that, the 2015 an excellent ****(*), STGT wine, the 2017 a stimulating **** of character, the 2018 also ****(*), a generous, striking wine. The white Crozes is invariably in the front rank of the appellation each year.
