LVT 2018 wh 2017 r An organic vineyard since 1972, a long way back. The Saint-Joseph red is carefully made, with good fruit purity - natural, elegant wine. The Condrieu is tightly textured, stylish, and receives less new oak than in the past, as Emmanuel seeks more freshness. The Vins de pays are really good in thier grade, most unfussy and agreeable. There's a good Viognier vin de pays, a good value Marsanne, a free drinking Merlot (since 2014), and respectable Syrah vins de pays also. The second St Jo red, terra Nostra, introduced in 2007, is a little on the oak, since it's fermented and raised in new oak - and it's 50% more expensive than the classic un Autre Monde St Jo red. Emmanuel [pictured, right, with Théo Allemand, son of Thiérry] used to grow peaches and apricots organically, but is now much reduced, down to 1.5 hectares.

He also works another 3 hectares under the title SCEA des Toreyres, with a friend called Bertand Lachal; the latter worked in metallurgy until changing in 2009 and spending four years with François Villard. This is split 1.5 ha St Joseph, 0.3 ha Condrieu (newly planted on Arcoules at Limony) and 1.2 ha vin de pays. Their first St Jo red is L’Audace from the Toyères site. The Viognier vin de pays is called L’Aplomb.
