DOMAINE CLUSEL-ROCH

LVT 2016 r 2015 wh A prime STGT domaine, it has been officially organic since 2002, but practices go back further. The vineyards are mostly in the northern sector, and the vineyards are worked with tremendous care; they include the use of home cuttings or selection massale Syrah. The wines are usually refined and understated, and are very pure. They benefit from ageing, and carry a Burgundian finesse mixed with northern Rhône depth and sinew. The domaine expanded in 1989 after the retirement of René Clusel and the arrival of Brigitte Roch. Les Grandes Places is a formidable wine of challenging complexity and well worth the outlay. La Viallière, revived in 2009, is also a winner. Son Guillaume is starting to make his own mark, with his 2014 and 2015 Saint-Joseph reds successful, the 2015 a **** w.o.w. wine. He also makes his own trio of wines from the Côteaux du Lyonnais, two Gamays and one Chardonnay
