LVT 2019 r 2018 wh Les Picaudières is one of the best red Crozes-Hermitages - great pedigree, good structure, rich and capable of complexity with evolution. I expect this 10.5 hectare domaine to provide arch examples of the northern granite in their red wines; the 2016 Les Picaudières did just that, an STGT ***** wine, and even in the hot vintages, its stamp of red fruit, floral notes comes through. The whites are led by Marsanne from the 1930s and 1965, the white vines on loess soils. From 2017, there have been two whites - Stéphane has split the old Marsanne vines apart, while the "new" domaine white Crozes includes the first Roussanne (2014). The soil is tilled by a mare where feasible. The Roussets grow a few apricots on the hillsides.
