JEAN-CLAUDE and NICOLAS FAYOLLE

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh Traditional, even rustic winemaking - wines could be fresher at times. These are all northern zone wines, the reds more on restraint than exuberance. Whites are on the up, and are genuinely local, well suited to local cuisine. Whole bunch use can mean a vegetal side is present in the early years of the red Crozes and Hermitage.

The 2015 Hermitage Les Dionnières red was an STGT ****(*) wine, pre-bottling, aided by the supreme success of the Les Diognières site in 2015, while the Crozes red La Cuvée Fayolle was also a ****(*) STGT wine - good going! In 2017, my preferred Crozes red was the **** La Cuvée Nicolas, a graceful wine with good character. The 2018 Crozes reds Grande Seguine and La Rochette were both **** wines pre-bottling, reflecting the relative success of the northern sector in that hot vintage.
