Cuvée Anonyme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2005

Smoky plum meets dank river and beef and ham’s baby on blacktop, with black rye, oregano, deer spoor, clay, and blackened corn meal. Medium mouthfeel, sharp plum-skin plus cranberrythat softens to raspberry and dried strawberry, rhubarb and miracle berry. Actually holding up well since 2005. #cdp #châteauneuf #chateauneufdepape #rhone #rhoneblend #frenchwines #xavier #anonyme #xaviercdpanonyme — a year ago

Arcane XV Le Diable Mourvedre 2015

100 year-old Mourvèdre; mostly CDP, a little Vinsobres. Blackberry, mulberry. Ferocious concentration, firm and tannic. Clean; no brett. So pure. Check back in five years...#xavier #mourvèdre #rhone — 2 years ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

Wild fraises, kirsch, garrigue. Maybe the greatest in the history of these benchmark CDR. Has the concentration and length of most southern Rhône crus. Superior. #xavier #côtesdurhône #grenache — a year ago

Rasteau Grenache Blend 2015

Bright. Kirsch and strawberry compote, balanced well by a savory, salvia-like quality. Hint of castor bean. Like all Xavier ‘15s, it juggles tannin, low pH, big ripeness. Superb. #xavier #rasteau #grenache #rhone — 2 years ago

Xavier Vignon

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2015

Warm, rich, Grenache-heavy. Like all of Xavier’s ‘15s, it touches all the bases: ripe, tannic and superbly low pH. Saline. Lots of vanilla bean and grated hard spices. Classic. #xavier #gigondas #rhone — 2 years ago

Cuvée Anonyme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

More open & approachable than previous vintages. Typical Anonyme: tannic, huge ripeness and impossibly low pH. Kirsch, hot silica. Just incredible. #xavier #châteauneuf #rhone — 2 years ago

Monthélie Pinot Noir 2011

Beautiful notes of red fruit, berries, cherries with some oak and a slight vegetal note. On the pallet: tart, medium plus tannins, medium alcohol, full body mouth feel, medium plus finish, overall a great wine. #monnot #monthelie #burgundy #xavier — 4 years ago
