LVT 2017 r 2016 wh Unpretentious wines, no jazzy modernism. The style is tight, compact. The Côte Rozier is serious wine, on the improve, while the Prélude (called JYL until 2015) has also stepped up a gear. In 2017 the Lafoys split out the 1934 Syrah on Côte Blonde (wine used to go into the Côte Rozier) to make a wine of that name. The presence of son Gaëtan, formally trained at Wine School in Mâcon, with a few months at the Plumpton College in Sussex near my home and work experience chez Jean-Michel Gérin, along with a commercial stint at the Boutellerie wine shop in Condrieu, has added good momentum. The Condrieu demi-sec, for drinking at Christmas time, has been replaced as vines have grown up by a good dry version, Aux Ruses, from Saint-Michel, the 2015 and 2016 both **** wines.
