"Outstanding" Cotes du Rhone from the up-coming village of Cairanne. From a great year and showing the best of this recently promoted Southern Rhone village appellation, the Xavier Cairanne is lush and delectable, sophisticated and smooth. This is the personal label of famous consultant Xavier Vignon, and thanks to the benefits of not owning his own vineyards - while having access to the best organic fruit - the quality in the bottle is superior.

70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre,

Its Origins

For the last 15 years, oenologist Xavier Vignon has become internationally known for being the winemaker of several of the best domaines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and the Rhone, such as Le Nerthe, Marcoux and Grand Veneur. In 2002 some friends (who are wine importers) asked him if he can create his own wine. Choosing amongst the best wines he has made, he creates Rhône wines of different vintages and appellations. His ideal wine is easy to understand, modern, powerful and great value for money. Before settling up in Rhône Valley, Xavier worked as a winemaker in Alsace, Champagne (Moët & Chandon), Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Burgundy and Languedoc-Roussillon.

What The Critics Say

91-93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck

"A new addition to the portfolio and from very old vines, the 2015 Cairanne looks to be outstanding, with terrific notes of lavender, garrigue and flowers grounded by a core of darker berry fruit. Rich, seamless and downright polished, it’s a no-brainer purchase that will offer tons of pleasure through 2025. The blend is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete tanks. -- Readers shouldn’t miss the Chateauneuf du Pape releases (reviewed in Issue 227) from Xavier Vignon, who’s easily one of the best winemakers in the Southern Rhône."
