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.
perfumed with black and blue fruits, violets, tapenade, bacon fat and spices come up with air. Concentrated palate of cherry, blueberry, fruit cake and anise all cut with juicy acidity and a mineral core running out long with fine grained, slow building tannins.
The cellaring potential of this producer is always exceptional and we encourage tucking a few of these away.
