One of the largest producers of Crozes with a range of cuvées. All the wines are organic and Laurent has recently acquired more old vines on the hillsides to the north of Tain as well as those close to the winery. Their Clos des Grives is one of the best (and most expensive) Crozes while their Cuvée L is a delicious forward wine aimed at the restaurant trade. Laurent is also one of the three "Trio Infernal" who have old vines in Priorat in Spain and these wines are also available to taste and buy. They are easy to find being on the main N7 road south from Tain towards Valence. There is a well set out tasting room and a wide range of wines to taste, but do ask to meet Laurent if you can when you make an appointment.
