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

The ‘15 is terrific already. It’s grenache all the way, powerful yet nuanced fruit statement with a firm backbone. Nose delights from the first moment, blueberry and blackberry. Taste offers herbal layers, some spice notes and darker fruit notes. Xavier brings everything in this delicious Gigondas.
