Tasting Notes

"Deep lurid ruby. A complex bouquet evokes ripe cherry and boysenberry, backed by hints of smoky minerals, game and licorice. Seamless and broad on the palate, offering sweet black and blue fruit, salty olive and violet flavors that are given spine and lift by a core of zesty acidity. Smooth and open-knit for a Levet wine, finishing with excellent clarity, building tannins and strong, smoky persistence.”

92-94 points. Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2018.

The Producer

Bernard Levet

The winery was established in Ampuis in 1936. They originally sold wine in barrels to bistros and cafes in the city of St. Etienne for consumption by miners. The present owner, Nicole and her husband Bernard Levet, took over the wine production as well as the management of the vineyard in 1983. This exceptional couple has increased the vineyard holdings and expanded the cellar capacity so that they can now bottle their entire production. Nicole and Bernard have now been joined by their daughter, Agnes, who has inherited the love for vineyard work and obsession with detail that are essential parts of her parent's character.
