LVT 2017 r 2015 wh Gilles went solo, departing the Tain Co-operative, in 1996. He uses no herbicides, and actively works the soil. The winemaking is modern, with in the past an emphasis on extraction: this started to ease from the late 2000s. The Papillon is an immediate, well fruited wine for young consumption. Recent winemaking has seen an increase in reduction, so decanting is often advised. The Saint-Joseph red is a good, consistent perfomer, even if there is noticeable oak as in 2017, while there is a steady Hermitage red from the lower West end of the hill - in 2015 it was an accurate terroir ***** wine. Gilles also has a Cornas on the go, the 2015 ****(*) pre-bottling. Since 2013 Gilles has worked with an optical sorting table for the harvest.
