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

Very good for what it is: deep luscious fruit, low acid, goes down like fruit punch. To be fair, the winemakers here kept it honest: voluptuous bordering on flabby. Period. In Cali they would've added a ton of acid and frankenwined it.

This winemaker started as a wine tech then started blending.
He is quite technical in his wines.
The 2009 vintage still has some time left but quite drinkable now.
Great wine.

Deep purple, rich luscious fruit, lingering finish, a bit "concentrated" but not overly so, well integrated tannins.
