Olivier & Lafont Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2020


In Stock

“In their day jobs, Baptiste Olivier and Gérard Lafont consult to a number of the most renowned domaines (and many that aren’t so famous but deserve to be) in appellations across the expanse of the southern Rhône valley, It’s a job that often demands anonymity (such are egos and reputations of many proprietors), which means that they often get little to no credit for their expertise, which doesn’t seem to bother either of them too much. Olivier & Lafont , a small négociant project the duo launched in 2011, has established itself as a rock-solid source for high-quality, elegant wines that, unsurprisingly, are sourced from some of the best wineries and vineyards in the region, at tariffs much lower than their origins might suggest. I strongly urge readers to seek these wines out as they consistently over-deliver for their pricing.”
