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

Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

"Vignon's entry-level 2016 Cotes du Rhone is a medium-bodied, silky wine. It's not overly complex, but it offers sappy cherry and raspberry fruit, a bouncy, fun personality and is a simple joy to drink."
