Description & Tasting Notes

Why this wine?

From a winemaker obsessed with the art of blending. Considered by some to be the best example of Chateauneuf-du-Pape by Xavier to dateFull-bodied and supple, it comes at you with layers of fruit, ranging from stone fruit and raspberries through to blueberries and cola. Long and harmonious on the finish.  

From the winemaker:  At the very core of Xavier Vignon’s expertise lies a well-oiled machine combined with lashings of experience, practice and intuition. The art of blending fascinated him from an early age and, over the years, he has turned it into an art form, daring to try out new associations, transcending codes and offering new, innovative techniques. 

Blending is the very cornerstone in the creation of a wine and the stage that determine’s the wine’s structure. Whether blending origins, parcels, soils, varietals and vintages… ‘It is at this point that everything is built and the work of art is shaped, in keeping with all of the factors that we have determined prior to that point’.
