Xavier Cotes du Rhone 2012 Product #30949 (In Stock)
Xavier Cotes du Rhone 2012 Xavier Cotes du Rhone 2012

IT'S BACK!!!  Xavier Vignon consults with vine growers and winemakers at some of the Rhone’s most famous estates, and he takes just a bit of his fee in the form of grapes to make outstanding wines like this one.  Grenache from 80+ year-old vines, nicely rich Syrah, and a remarkable 25% Mourvedre – very generous for a wine at this price level – are all harvested ripe, fermented cool, and aged in concrete tank to retain 100% authentic Rhone character.

"The 2012 Côtes du Rhône is another beauty by this team. Licorice, roasted herbs, pepper and plenty of sweet fruit come together in this medium to full-bodied, layered, and textured effort. Made from 60% Grenache, and Mourvedre and Syrah that saw mostly concrete tank, it’s a smoking Côtes du Rhône (and a fabulous value) to drink over the coming 3-4 years."Wine Advocate 90 points
