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.

More graphite, new saddle leather, blackberries, and cassis emerge from the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Cuvée 100%. It’s concentrated, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured. This cuvée is a Grenache-dominated blend (there are small amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre) raised all in concrete.

90-93 points, Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2018)

Rich, velvety and long, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone 100% looks like another winning example of this cuvée. It's full-bodied, bursting with grape, boysenberry and blueberry fruit, yet it remains fresh and mouthwatering on the finish.

90-92 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Issue # 239 - Oct 2018)
