LVT 2019 wh 2019 r  There has been a gentle up curve in quality here, with son Anthony stoking some of the fires, and concentrating more on the quality of the whites, which were not his late father Alain's prime consideration; Alain died from a sudden, savage cancer in the spring of 2013, in his early 60s. Anthony's own wine is the Seyssuel red Serinae - made from the schist near Vienne, 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. His 100% Syrah Seyssuel, called Sublinae, was a cracking VALUE ****(*) wine in 2015.

The Condrieu Les Ceps du Nébadon is now stylish under Anthony's hand, a tender wine. The Condrieu Lys de Volan is more intricate, a big, mineral, emphatic wine best drunk after two to three years: it is one of the most long-lived Condrieus - the 2016 is a ****(*) wine that will run to 2026-28, the 2018 a **** likely to run towards 2031-33. The Saint-Joseph reds are modern styled, with the Larmes du Père capable of local expression. Alain's previous partner at Condrieu was Gérard Depardieu, the French cinema actor, and, more recently, Marcel Guigal, who has a share in the Volan vineyard and bought the Depardieu share.
