Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Ultra-dry and crisp French Côtes Du Rhône rosé, pale summery peach colour with lovely floral rose, lavender and dried herbal aromas. Garrique and lavender dominate the palate with excellent acidity and long lavender finish. Perfect for black olive tapenade and goat cheese on baguette slices for a picnic.
Tasted March 2019
Xavier Vignon 2017 is a medium-bodied bright red berry rosé blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Juicy and savoury all at the same time with rhubarb, wild strawberries, raspberries and savoury herbs on the palate. Pair with roast turkey. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
