LVT 2017 r 2018  wh  2014 rosé  Used to be a trendsetter, yes, in the 1970s. Some years in the wilderness. Respectable wines now, notably La Réserve Cairanne red, the Voconces also agreeable. The whites are clear. However, the Big Picture has been dodgy. The Cave was for two years in redressement judiciare – more or less judicial correction - which meant that an outside accountant was in charge of all expenditure and outgoings. As a result of members not having been paid for some of their past crop, there have been many departures and the situation is fluid. In early 2016, the status is that it will continue as a Cave Co-operative, with the merchant Les Grandes Serres taking more space and facilities, which has helped cash flow. There has also been a change in harvesting policy, with greater ripeness sought from the 2015 vintage onwards. The amount of wine being produced has diminished a lot.
