LVT 2017 r 2016 wh STGT domaine, handmade wines. Biodynamic approach since 1996, applied with careful dedication. Jean-Pierre Monier used to belong to the Cave Co-operative of St-Désirat until 2001. The reds possess clear fruit and are understated. The Terre Blanche is intended to be the longest-lived, the Les Serves shows soft fruit and can be drunk early. All wines benefit from decanting.
There is a co-operation with another biodynamic grower, Philippe Perréol, which includes their putting their small holdings of white Saint-Joseph into one wine, the same for the red Saint-Joseph Tradition - both from Domaine Monier-Perréol. On its own, the Domaine Perréol produces a very good Saint-Joseph red called Châtelet from limestone over granite soils; the 2015 was a ****(*), the 2016 a **** wine. Expensive, but notably pure wines here.
