LVT 2018 r 2018 wh Jean Barnier created what is now a big nursey of young vine plants business in the 1980s, then the domaine in 1992. He had previously cultivated mixed fruit and vegetables. The nursery business mostly covers domaines of the Vaucluse, and is run by Céline. It sells 40 grape varieties. The domaine vineyards is 100 hectares, 14 ha of Vacqueyras, 13 ha of Côtes du Rhône, the rest Vin de Pays. All three Vacqueyras reds are from their own vineyards.
The three Vacqueyras reds present good quality. The Castillon, **** in 2014 and 2017, has a high proportion of Syrah, 40% at least. The 2,000 bottle Pince Lapin red, half Grenache, half Syrah, was a really good drinking, generous **** wine in 2017, and also **** in 2016. The 73 hectares of Vin de Pays at Sarrians give large scale production wines, efficient above all.
