Reviews and Ratings

Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A medium-ruby Rhone with dark cherry aromas and oak aging evident in the licorice and vanilla flavours on the palate. The tannins are still prominent so this wine can be aged for several years further or decanted for a couple of hours. Lamb and roast beef would pair well.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Chateauneuf-du-Pape opens with a fresh nose with hints of warm, sweet barnyard hay. Warm earthiness carries to the palate. It has chalky tannins on a long, slightly hot finish. Drink now but a couple more years in the cellar will reward your patience. Serve with beef stew or lamb shanks. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

In spite of this wine having rave reviews, I found it to be a little heavy and full blown. It had a hot character which was full of jammy fruit and baked spices and slightly lacked the freshness and purity of fruit that I have found in other CHNdP that I have loved more. As this wine ages, the little fruit there is will fall away quickly. If you do like a more rustic style, this one is for you. @wrightwineblog
Xavier Vignon Cuvée Anonyme 2015 is an incredible, multi-layered red wine blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 8% Counties, 4% Vacates and 3% Muscadine. Fragrant with pink florals and ripe cherry aromas on the nose, juicy with ripe cherries, anise and vanilla flavours intense and smooth on the palate. Tannins are firm. A beauty in development, give it another three years in cellar to show its best. - Community Wine Reviews
