2001 Xavier Vignon "Cuvée Ange" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

SKU #1542493 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Blended in 2010 and bottle in 2019, aged in barrels always submerged in wine, the 2001 Châteauneuf Du Pape Ange sports a still youthful ruby color as well as a beautiful bouquet of cured meats, ground pepper, tobacco, white truffle, and spice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured, it's multi-dimensional, layered, and elegant, with a Bonneau-like complexity and style. This is a thrilling wine. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

K&L Notes

The key to Xavier Vignon's success as a winemaker is the relationships he has developed over his decades as a consulting winemaker. His son Ange was born in 2001 which also happened to be an exceptional vintage. Xavier started setting aside small bits of cuvees he sourced from his partner wineries from that iconic year. Those all went into storage in his cellar in vat and they were all recently reunited and bottled. The end result is this insightful look into one of the great vintages of the last few decades, perfectly preserved in tank and bottled for your enjoyment. It is downright amazing stuff, showing maturity and freshness. Still capable of aging for another decade, it will be a treat to revisit this when Ange turns 30 in 2031!
