LVT 2018 r 2018 wh A long-established family domaine in the prime southern Saint-Joseph village of Mauves. An important address. The vineyards are spread across good sites. The red wines are very consistent, but at times, a touch functional. They move along a scale from the simple, young vine straight Saint-Joseph through older Syrah and on to an overt new oak, older vine cuvée called Sensonne. The Paradis St-Pierre is a personal favourite, since it mixes well fruit, tannin and vintage style. The whites are sound, with the Paradis blanc capable of evolving well over 12+ years in the vintages with good acidity levels; it was a ****(*) wine in 2018, when drinking is not recommended before 2024. The 2015 red Saint-Josephs were all sound wines, the Olivaie, Paradis St-Pierre and Sensonne all **** wines when tasted from cask. The 2016s are very good, led by the cavalier ****(*) Le Paradis St Pierre and by the rich, deep ****(*) La Sensonne, up to handling its all new oak raising. In 2018, L'Olivaie was an entertaining **** wine, with the Sensonne also on ****.
