Critic Review

Coup de Coeur 3 stars Guide Hachette 2021 "This 'Cuvée of Happiness' won a Coup de Coeur for the 2018 vintage, and has won it again this year, and this time with a maximum 3 stars. A classic blend of Grenache and Syrah, but an unusual nose: intense, pure, it lets the slightly candied fruit (raspberry) speak for itself, then beautiful spices which add a dimension of alluring freshness. Spices (cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg) which increase in power in a generous palate yet vinified with finesse, without overextraction, supported by finely sculpted tannins. A cuvée that has never lived up to its name so well. Irresistible."

Laure Dubois runs this excellent estate with her husband Romain and has fully converted to Organic farming. The wines they produce are consistently good and elegant, mainly from the Lirac appellation, north West of Chateauneuf-du-Pape but also this Cotes du Rhone from just outside. The 2022 is the third year in five vintages that the wine has won a coveted Coup de Coeur top award in the Guide Hachette, the 'bible' of French wine. Charming, 'irresistible' and ready to drink it also offers outstanding value for money.


Domaine La Lôyane was voted Winemaker of the Year in 2018 by the Guide Hachette.

La Lôyane refers to the place where the estate is built, a place formerly occupied by wolves!

The estate, founded in 1994, is located in the south of the Rhône Valley, near Avignon in the Lirac cru. The Dubois family has been cultivating its 20 hectares of vines there for 4 generations! And the last, with Romain Dubois, has cnverted the estate to organic farming.

An extremely precise estate, which is constantly moving upmarket and producing wines from vines that are sometimes more than a century old!
