Xavier Vignon Cotes du Rhone 2018
This one is short and sweet! Once again our “go to” Côtes du Rhône producer Xavier Vignon has hit it out of the park, crafting an amazing everyday affordable red that is loaded with sunny southern French character. This is a veritable “baby” Châteauneuf du Pape that will pair with everything from grilled or roasted chicken, duck breast, pork, beef, lamb or game. Perhaps a bit finer, balanced and elegant than the superb 2017 (one of our best selling wines since we opened!), we all agree that the 2018 is even a little better! Jeb Dunncuk describes it as follows, and we couldn’t agree more. In stock now and open to taste today – come on in and try before you buy!
Jeb Dunnuck – “Deep ruby/purple-colored, the 2018 Côtes Du Rhône offers a more seductive, elegant, seamless style as well as impressive blackberry fruits and pepper garrigue aromas and flavors. It’s elegant and medium-bodied, has a beautiful texture, and is going to drink nicely right out of the gate.”
