Regular readers of these pages are no stranger to the stunning wines being produced by Xavier Vignon. As you know, Xavier is one of the top two leading consultants in the Rhone (Cambie the other). Xavier has established a flawless reputation working with such luminaries as Marcoux, Grand Veneur, Raymond Usseglio and others. Through these relationships, he has gained access to incredibly pristine parcels of very old vine plantings across the valley. He is very connected with the vineyards and vignerons of the Rhone. Don’t miss the extraordinary values he produces, absolutely top in their class and scores to match.

A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvèdre and the rest Cinsault and Syrah, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Cuvée Vieilles Vignes offers a gorgeous bouquet of cassis, blueberries, lavender, cured meats, and graphite. It's deep, rich, medium to full-bodied, and has a great finish. The Mourvèdre keeps this tight and fresh, and I suspect it will age beautifully.
