Honest, Untamed, Beautiful:
2019 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 complex.

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

The 2019 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.

Les Journaries is unapologetically old-school northern Rhone rendered with amazing clarity. We're always excited to offer this wine, but please keep in mind that quantities are very limited.
