LVT 2019 r 2019 wh Very steady quality, a domaine of 43 hectares; the red wines can take time to fuse and blossom. The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Père Pape red was a ***** wine, pre-bottling: thorough and persistent. It has been correct since then, not that inspiring. I rate the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Crau de Ma Mère more highly; its shape is helped by around 25% Mourvèdre, whose 1997 vines are now getting into their stride. Given that the vines are on the top notch La Crau, it should be good. The **** 2019 was authentic, thorough.

The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Crau de Ma Mère white was w.o.w. **** wine, the 2019 also ****, more full-bodied, while the new Châteauneuf-du-Pape red Cuvée Alex (only 3,700 bottles) was a ***** wine in 2015, big and fresh.
