“Excellent clarity and lift”
2017 Levet Côte-Rôtie Les Journaries

Posted by Joe Salamone

Levet’s wines are some of our favorites from the northern Rhône. They are true masters of old-school Côte-Rôtie.

We love the wine's rugged honesty. They are a completely genuine expression of Syrah: unapologetically wild and beautifully complex.

Today, we’re happy to offer Levet’s 2017 Les Journaries for $78.95 per bottle and $73.95 in 4 packs.

Les Journaries comes from 45-year-old vines from the famed “La Landonne” vineyard. Compared to Chavaroche, Journaries is more elegant and graceful. Both wines are made following unyieldingly traditional methods that highlight the untamed fascination that Northern Rhône wines can possess.

In the warmer 2017 vintage, Les Journaries has an immediacy that its typical fortress-like structure seldom delivers. There's a nice precision and core of finesse. While the structure is buried, it's certainly present and the wine will continue to evolve really well for the next 10-15 years.

Levet has long been a favorite at Crush and the 2017s are really impressive. We’ve created special pack pricing for this as you’ll want to track Les Journaries - the rewards will be huge.

2017 Levet Côte-Rôtie Les Journaries

Special Bottle Price: $78.95

Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media: "Deep, lurid ruby. Expansive, mineral- and spice-accented aromas of blackberry, cherry pie, star anise, olive and violet show excellent clarity and lift. Round, pliant and alluringly sweet, offering intense black/blue fruit, spicecake flavors and a late touch of mocha. Finishes smooth, smoky and extremely long, displaying well-delineated mineral, floral pastille notes and sneaky tannins."

Special 4-Pack Price: $295.80 ($73.95/btl)
