Xavier Vignon was just 3 years old in 1972! This cuvée is a reflection of Xavier Vignon’s passion for discovery. It is the fruit of his in depth knowledge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and the interesting encounters he has shared over the 25 years with other winemakers from the appellation. This vintage was an opportunity not to be missed. It would be impossible now to find the same levels of acidity (equivalent to those in a white wine, higher even!) which give this wine its outstanding potential for bottle age.
This batch was grown in a single domaine and has been aged in concrete vats, in the very same place, for almost 50 years! It has since been carefully re-crafted by Xavier Vignon in order to bring out the best of its complexity and finesse. A hommage to the world of wine as it used to be! This is primarily Grenache Noir complemented by Cinsault as well as some white varietals, as was the tradition in the era (Grenache blanc and Clairette).
