LVT 2018 r 2018 wh A progressive domaine, revitalised by the young generation, father Jean-Paul, the twin of Jean-Claude at Domaine Fayolle J-C & N, having sadly died in 2008. It is a high class address.  These are refined wines, and some have STGT characteristics - the ***** 2015 Les Dionnières Hermitage white, an example. The whites are notably good, the Crozes Les Pontaix blanc a favourite (the 2016 a **** STGT wine). Clear fruit and a leaning towards elegance is the house style. The 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Les Cornirets Vieilles Vignes red was a Rhône connoisseur’s dream wine at ****(*), and its 2017 version was a ****(*) STGT wine, straight off the granite. The Fayolles have started a merchant business, with crop purchases, under the name of Laurent & Céline Fayolle: from this range comes a good Saint-Péray called Montis, from mature Marsanne vines; the 2018 was an excellent ****(*) STGT wine, with great finesse given the vintage.
