Xavier Cotes du Rhones 2018


Description & Tasting Notes

Why this wine?

From a winemaker obsessed with the art of blending. A Côtes du Rhône with a well-defined style, made from more than 200 plots of different terroirs and old vines between 45 and 80 years old for the three grape varieties.  Bright nose, fresh and juicy dark-cherry and cassis palateFine, succulent, even-paced tannins.

About 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’.
