LVT 2019 r 2019 wh 2019 rosé Adrien is the third generation in wine here, a gifted young man, also the partner of Claire Michel of Le Vieux Donjon at Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In 2001 he departed the Visan Co-opérative to work in a newly built cellar. He also owns the good Saint-Maurice estate called Domaine de l'Echevin, which from 2019 has also been called Domaine La Florane as well. The wines are organic and biodynamic. This is a high quality address, with notable fruit clarity, and more and more of aleaning towards elegance. Indeed, there has been a conversion from obvious oak and extraction in the 2000s to these more refined, and superior wines of the late 2010s, early 2020s.

The Visan Fleur de Pampre range in red, white and rosé is a very good bet; the white [based on Marsanne fom the early 1980s, unusual for round here] is refined, as is the well restrained rosé, the red suitably generous of fruit. The Visan red Terre Pourpre is 80% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, the 2018 an effusive **** wine capable of matching a wide variety of dishes.

With Claire Michel, he has a small, good merchant business under the name Cuisine en Famille, two red and one white organic wine, one of the reds zero added SO2.
