LVE by John Legend Reviews

Score: 95 | April 17, 2023 | Beverage Dynamics

Legend Vineyard Exclusive (LVE) is a unique collaboration between pop icon John Legend and JC Boisset. Sourcing the southern French region of Languedoc to blend primarily grenache (57%), syrah, cinsault and carignan. Clay, sandstone and limestone soils offer unique characteristics, and the grapes are vinified separately in addition to the use of only free-run and first-press juice to add to the complexity. All stainless steel for fermentation and aging enhances the freshness of the fruit. Pale pink color leads to fresh raspberry, strawberry and granny smith apple flavors. A great reminder of how good a classic French rosé can be.

John Legend has another hit with this wine produced in collaboration with the Boisset Collection. Fresh, focused black-fruit flavors are deep and concentrated, emphasizing the purity of fruit while adding subtle toasted oak, nutmeg and ginger notes. Blueberries, black cherries and black currants bring a lip-smacking midpalate and lead to a lingering finish. Best 2026–2036. JIM GORDON
