LVT 2012 wh r Good Coteaux des Baronnies Chardonnay
LVT 2011 r 2011 wh 2012 rosé For many years the standard bearer domaine at Coteaux des Baronnies, which was created in 1978. The vineyards have been organic since 2007, the wine organic as well since 2012. The Syrah and Chardonnay both do very well here. 80-90,000 bottles are produced, the rest sold in Bag in the Box to private customers.
LVT 2010 wh 2010 r 2010 rosé A good domaine; the blended red is well done; there is less emphasis on single varietal wines than at the first cousin Domaine du Rieu Frais. It has been organic and biodynamic since 2010.
LVT 2012 wh 2012 rosé 2012 r A domaine started in 2010; Sylvia’s father Michel is in his early 50s and sends his crop to the Cave des Baronnies outside Nyons. She took over her uncle André’s vines after his retirement. It is a polyculture domaine still – Sylvia has 3 hectares, her father 6 hectares of apricots (Oranger de Provence, old name Polonnais). Sylvia studied for 2 years at Davayé in the Mâconnais and commerce at Dijon. Good quality: the Chardonnay very good, the rosé fragrant, the reds sound.
