James Suckling "Fresh apricots, sliced apples, jasmine and lemons on the nose. Hint of white pepper, too. It’s medium-bodied, supple and creamy. Fresher, fruity finish. Viognier and grenache blanc." (2020 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Vibrant hints of fresh green herb and bramble accent crisp white peach and tart tangerine in this full-bodied yet zesty dry white. A blend of Grenache Blanc and Viognier, it's plush but stands out for the zippy lime and green-plum accents." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "Attractive dried-lemon and apple character with lemon grass, following through to a full-bodied palate with plenty of delicious fruit at the end." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Viognier's fleshy white peach and spring-blossom notes balance nicely with the delicate green-plum and citrus tones of Grenache Blanc in this thirst-quenching dry white. Edged by a hint of smoked hazelnut, it's an immediately enjoyable, freshly balanced wine. " (2019 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Very juicy and bright, with verbena, star fruit, white peach and honeysuckle notes blitzing through. Offers a racy, lively finish." (2018 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Fresh blossoms mingle amidst earth tones in this freshly composed blend of Grenache Blanc and Viognier. The spry palate offers crisp red-apple and citrus flavors kissed with honeysuckle. The finish is brisk but clean." (2016 vintage)

Curious Wines "...Beautiful!.....A fleshy, unctuous style that's very typical of the southern Rhône. Full and fruity, with a soft, yielding texture and loads of gorgeous pear, apricot and lemon flavours, and hints of almond blossom and anise on the dry finish." (2016 vintage)

The Winemaker "A lovely nose of peaches and pears with delicate anise overtones. Delicious on the palate with lovely fat, beautiful freshness and long-lingering aromas." (2016 vintage)

Grenache blanc (60%) Viognier (40%)

This wine is derived from selected vineyards in the Vaucluse and Gard areas of France. Grapes are selected from vines growing in clay-limestone plains and hillsides. After a light skin maceration, the grapes are pressed and placed in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. (2016 vintage)

Fermentation is carried out at low temperature to preserve as much fruit as possible. Ageing also takes place in vats, on the fines lees, with no malolactic fermentation taking place, in order to preserve the crisp, crunchy character of this easy-drinking wine. (2016 vintage)

Originally from Bordeaux, the Lavau family has been involved with winemaking for generations, and have had vineyards ranging from Bordeaux to Tunisia. In 1964 they were seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil and settled down to make wine in the Rhone Valley.

The cellars of Lavau are currently managed by Benoit and Frederic Lavau, who work in partnership with 350 different grape growers. Benoit is a frequent visitor to Singapore and Pop Up Wine events.
