Palate Profile

The culmination of a long project from Xavier Vignon : the champagne blending style taken to its limits! 5 vintages from the most outstanding of recent years grown in 10 different terroirs in the southern Rhône valley (including Châteauneuf du Pape, Rasteau, Ventoux and high altitude parcels in Côtes du Rhône Village). The blend is composed of 15 different, mainly late ripening variations of Grenache with a variety of rootstocks (Rupestris du Lot, Fercal, Riparia Gloire de Montpellier, 41B), clones (old clones) and pruning systems (primarily gobelet trained vines). 85% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah, 5% Caladoc (to impart spice and structure).

Each case of 6 comes in this original wooden case!

Critic Awards

It has a big, sweet nose of blueberries, black cherries, lavender, and peppery incense as well as a full-bodied, layered, powerful yet seamless style on the palate. With no hard edges, silky tannins, and a big finish, it's a singular wine (it’s mostly from vines in Châteauneuf Du Pape).

Punching above its waist

To say this is really fantastic value for money is not event doing justice to this gem. It is phenomenal and will surprise many. It’s bold, it’s terrific and it mellows out perfectly as it oxidises.
