LVT 2016 r 2016 wh A Franco-American partnership, started in 2011. Julien is the nephew of Jean-Louis Grippat, the consummate quality vigneron of Tournon in my youth, who sold his vineyard, notably the Vignes de l’Hospice, to Guigal when taking slightly early retirement after the 2000 vintage. They make Saint-Joseph red and white, northern sector, granite Crozes-Hermitage red, and Saint-Péray. 2014 shows the Crozes-Hermitage red in a very good light. The 2014 Saint-Péray Gemini was an en finesse ***(*) wine, with carbonic gas present, the 2016 Gemini a nourishing **** wine. The 2018 St Jo blanc Victoria, 100% Marsanne, was extremely pared back, very New Wave, bearing just 12° on the label, a tricky assignment to love it.
