LVT 2017 r 2017 wh At last greater consistency is emerging here from one vintage to the next, as the winemaking is handled with a surer touch. The vineyard site is right in the heart of the proper Saint-Joseph appellation at St Jean-de-Muzols - the southern zone - and the vineyards' extreme age and quality bode well. The approach is gentle, traditional. Some of the reds are STGT, such as the 2014 and the 2017, although one other bottle of the former was corked, which rather sums things up. The labels for the reds and the whites bear the words Vieilles Vignes; the son Mikael's label is different from his father Michel's, although both are termed "M.Desestret".
