Thursday, February 25, 2021

Time: 04:00pm - 08:00pm

Type: Wine Tasting

Location: The Wine Cabinet

Event Free


(All purchases must be accompanied by a credit card.)



60% Grenache and 40% Syrah
Courthezon, France

With the average age of the vines over 50 years this bottling really over performs! 
Last year we offered both Xavier's Lirac and Cote du Rhone for Thirsty Thursday
only to sell out
 the entire state quickly. If you haven't tasted one of his wines,
they are truly a notch above and drink north of their price point.
Santé ! 

90 Points James Suckling
"Aromas of cassis and blueberries here with a spiced blueberry-pastry note, too.
The palate has a juicy feel with crunchy, spiced blue fruit and a smooth transition to the gently chewy finish.
Drink over the next five years."

What Robert Parker says about Xavier
"Xavier Vignon, along with Philippe Cambie, are probably the two most highly renowned oenologists in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as some of the surrounding Cotes du Rhone regions. He is the consultant for such well-known domaines as Raymond Usseglio, Jerome Quiot, Beaurenard, LaNerthe, Mont Redon, Marcoux, Grand Veneur and La Gardine. They access gorgeous fruit from many different appellations and are doing a top-flight job of getting impressive quality into the bottle. Moreover, there are some top values in their portfolio as well. Many of his wines are released quite late onto the market, as he prefers to age wines up to three winters before bottling and two winters after bottling." - Robert Parker

Our Thoughts on this wine....
 Coming from a handful of sites in the Ventoux (mostly higher elevation, cooler vineyards), the 2017 Ventoux offers notes of ripe red fruits, white pepper, cedar and a hint of  herbs. Elegant and medium-bodied, it has fine tannins, beautiful purity, and a pure, layered style.

About Xavier......... 
Oenologist consultant for twenty years in Chateauneuf du Pape and Southern Rhone Valley, Xavier Vignon is considered one of the most prominent consultants in the region. He assembles his own wines under his signature by adding a touch of
modernity to the sincere expression of the Rhone terroirs. Each vintage Xavier is the fruit of meticulous work and a rigorous selection. The diversity of the Rhone terroirs, combined with the freedom offered by small structure, allows him, vintage after vintage, to select the wines that will allow Xavier's blends to combine concentration, minerality, and nobility of the fruit. For the last 15 years, oenologist Xavier Vignon has become internationally known for being the winemaker of several of the best domaines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and around (La Nerthe, La Vieille Julienne, Beaurenard, La Mordorée, etc.)
  In 2002, some friends (who are wine importers) asked him if he can create his own wine. Choosing amongst the best wines he has made, he creates a blended Rhône with different vintages, and different appellations. His ideal wine, easy to understand, modern, powerful and a great value for money, 100% Xavier was born.
