New cuvée – Koudiat Côtes du Rhône


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…
