2016 Xavier Vignon Gigondas

SKU #1498908 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark One of the gems in the lineup from Xavier is the 2016 Gigondas which is made from 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre, from a number of terroirs, but mostly from higher elevation, limestone sites. Its deep purple color is followed by terrific notes of ripe blackberries, toasted spice, and dried herbs, with a hint of graphite. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with brilliant purity and lots of tannins, it’s killer wine to enjoy over the coming decade or more. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a very impressive expression with such intense, energetic and vibrant ripe cherries and red berries. The palate has such prowess and precision. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Gigondas from Xavier Vignon kicks off with a spicy touch of clove and cracked pepper, then eases into black cherry fruit, a full-bodied, supple mid-palate and a long, creamy finish with just a touch of warmth. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Born in the north of France to a stonemason father, it would have been easy for Xavier Vignon to carve out his future in the same skilled trade, but he eventually chose to work around other stones- the large white galets that dapple the vineyards of Chateuneuf-du-Pape and the limestone rich cliffs of the Dentelle de Montmirail that shadow the vines in Gigondas. From tasting an impressive range of his recent vintages, I'm glad he traded his stonemason's chisel for a cellarmaster's pipette. His remarkable 2016 Gigondas states on the black label "Made in Rhone with Love", but it's also made with great skill in the meticulous election of fruit, reflecting Xavier Vignon's deep knowledge of the region and its terroirs. Imbued with elegant spice and violets intermingled with copious black and red fruits ensconced by rich tannins, this brilliant wine will develop nicely over the next ten years.

This is simply delicious and starts with very lifted aromas that soar right out of the glass. The wine is fruity and lively: filled with nori, cracked pepper, spiced red berries and ripe cherries that carry right through the long warm finish.
