LVT 2017 r 2017 wh  Laurent is the fourth generation, his great-grandfather rearing sheep, his grandfather Louis working vineyards at Roussas. His parents planted more vineyards at Roussas, and sold the crop to the Co-operative La Suzienne. His father’s approach was not at all organic. Laurent has been on the domaine, making the wine, since 2004. It has been organic since 2004, biodynamic since 2011. In 2012 Laurent bought vines at Saint Restitut, where his mother Mireille’s family also owned vineyards. There are now 20 ha at Roussas and 13 ha at Saint Restitut, along with 20 hectares given to hay production for the cattle of a neighbour – there is a swap of hay for the compost that is applied to his vineyards. Half the wine is sold as Grignan, half as Vin de France. There is good purity in the fruit. I favour the steel vat raised wines over the oaked wines. It's a prominent address at Grignan.
