LVT 2018 r 2019 rosé 2018 wh  There has been a good quality leap forward here since new oenologue, E Gagnepain appeared. The domaine has been officially organic since 2011. There is soundly fruited Visan, with greater roundness than has been apparent in the past at Visan. The major wines have serious structure, notably the Visan La Rocaille, based on mid-1960s Grenache, the 2017 a ****(*) wine.

In its early days, the domaine was helped by outsiders arriving with an open mind – Marianne Fues from Zurich, her husband Marc from the Canton of the Vaud, who used to work in the formerly “illustrious” Crédit Suisse Bank… The first wine was in 1994. Around 10% can be sold in bulk, some of the Côtes du Rhône. The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Florilège red was a **** w.o.w. wine. This is a GOOD VALUE estate. The domaine changed hands in 2019. Two whites, both Visan, were introduced in the late 2010s. L'Octave is 95% Grenache blanc [depth for la table], while the Trilogy [elegant] is one-third each Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Viognier.
