Wine Spectator 91 points - Bright and racy in feel, with high-pitched red currant, cherry and raspberry coulis notes, laced with violet, white pepper and chalk details. The long, youthfully taut finish should settle in with mid-term cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2023. 5,000 cases made.
Rated #72 in Wine Spectator’s 2015 Top 100

Formerly from St Emilion, the Lavau Family has been involved in winemaking for several generations, from Bordeaux to the hills of Tunisia. In 1964, seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil, they decided to settle in the Rhone Valley. 40 years later, the cellar is currently managed by Benoit and Frederic Lavau. The family own 3 cellars in the south of the Rhone Valley, where they are in partnership with 300 grape growers.
