A blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Syrah.
The Xavier Cotes du Rhone Rouge has a rich ruby colour with crimson hues. The nose is intense and shows red fruits, black fruits, flowers and spices. The palate is spacious, very silky, powerful and generous.
"Again, the practice of Xavier Vignon is to age all the Grenache and Carignan in tank and the Mourvedre, and occasionally Syrah, in small oak. The classic Cotes du Rhone offers wonderful peppery, black currant, black cherry, tobacco leaf, licorice and spice characteristics, abundant flavor, more body and density than most wines with this humble pedigree, as well as terrific purity and texture." - Robert Parker
