Koudiat is the iconic cuvée made by LAVAU, our dad used to blend each vintage when he was still living in North Africa where our family arrived in 1895.
During a recent visit in our cellar in Violès, our dad tasted a sample of red Côtes du Rhône from current vintage and said: “it tastes like home, same taste as when I was young”
We couldn’t let this opportunity pass by, we could perpetuate the family history.
Koudiat is the remaining souvenir of the little hillsides of Lavau, you will discover a quality wine for which the expression of fruit and the silkiness have been our goal but always keeping in mind the search for great balance.
A thirst quenching wine to share, Koudiat is your Family wine…
