DOMAINE HABRARD

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh STGT domaine all officially organic from 2013, which is signalled on the labels with the word Bio. Since 2013 there has been no use of SO2 during the vinification. The Crozes vineyard has increased from 11 to 14 hectares since the late 2000s, the increment based on the commune of Gervans. A notable card is that the vineyard is mature, averaging over 40 years. They work especially good Marsanne vineyards. The Habrards have always made good white wine. The white Hermitage is always genuine, and full: the 2015 a ****(*) and the 2016 a **** wine.

The red Crozes has been gently improving, and comes in a very drinkable, unfussy style. The top Crozes red [no added SO2 during vinification] was named Valérie in 2016, when it was a good drinking **** wine, and Kévin in 2017, when it was a big structure, mini-Hermitage ****(*) wine. The low production Saint Joseph red is good as well, the 2016 a **** wine. Laurent started in 1998. The family also grows apricots and peaches, and their Apricot juice is served in Paris hotels. 60-65% of the wine is sold to Sweden. Laurent is selling through the internet more and more.
