Vignobles Levet are a classic producer of Cote Rotie with all of their holdings in some of the great vineyards of Ampuis. Careful farming and manual harvesting for four generations has seen this modest size Domaine carve out an excellent reputation of quality.

Their vineyards are comprised of Petite Serine an old clone of Shiraz that produces smaller berried bunches with most of their vines planted pre 1950.

This cuvee comes from Brune, Blonde, Baleyat, Chavaroche, and Millard lieu dits. Searing meat, smoke and pepper move to red and dark berries with violets sitting high in the glass. Concentrated black raspberry, bitter cherry and eccles cake with a lick of hard herbs tempering the sweeter notes. The finish is long and fine with a modest tannic grip framing the exit seamlessly making this approachable whilst young with a number of hours in a decanter.

The cellaring potential of this producer is always exceptional and we encourage tucking a few of these away.
