JEAN-BAPTISTE SOUILLARD

LVT 2016 r 2016 wh A range of 16 reds and whites made with infinite care by a determined winemaker, whose father is a director at the Cave de Saint-Désirat; there are no vineyards. Jean-Baptiste buys harvest from precise sites, and vinifies in batches that can run from 300 bottles to 1,500 bottles in rare cases. There are 10,000 bottles all told. After winemaking twice in Australia, in New Zealand, Burgundy and Bordeaux, and a Masters at Dijon, he worked as an oenologue for Jean-Luc Colombo for a few years before starting his own business in 2014. The style is very tight, almost lean at times, in the New Wave manner; some of the wines are excessively this way - the two Cornas, for example. The four Saint-Joseph reds are a good collection, and the Côte-Rôtie Coteau de Bassenon is by some way the better of the two Cote-Roties. Of the whites, the Vin de France Marsanne was a ***(*) w.o.w. wine in 2016, and the Crozes-Hermitage Le Tout blanc a **** wine of some intrigue in 2016.
