LVT 2018 wh 2018 r Has been one of the best Co-operatives in the Rhône Valley over many years. After a dip in the late 2000s, connected to the collapse of the Cave de Sarras, there have been more encouraging signs from 2012 and more especially 2013. By 2006 it was accounting for over 45% of all St-Joseph, following the bankruptcy of the other main St-Joseph Co-operative, the Cave de Sarras. The wines are made in a more modern style these days, and oak use is apparent on the more expensive reds, as well as the Condrieu. The Tradition Saint-Joseph red is easy to drink, and not noticeably oaked, while the Rochevine has pretty natural depth. The Septentrio St Jo red is very oaked. The Saint Joseph Côte Diane red is the best of the range, the 2016 a commendable, easy to drink ***(*) wine, the 2018 an exuberant, nicely long **** wine. The white St-Josephs are agreeable, suited for early drinking.
