“If you haven't yet discovered these wines, now is a great time. As a side note, I’m halfway through a case of his 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, with every wine showing brilliantly.” The Wine Advocate
As YOUR advocate for all things vinous, delicious, straight-up rocking and soul-satisfying, today we have served up a tremendous 95-POINTER, our latest mega-score from super-oenologist Xavier Vignon at a jaw-dropping OVER 50% OFF! Drinking gorgeously - IN-sane price!
Heard of Marcoux? Usseglio? Chateau La Nerthe? Those are just a few of the rockstars Xavier consults with and we are STOKED to have a great direct relationship with him, bringing his thrilling, savory, intense Chateauneuf’s (and other Rhone masterpieces) into our Napa warehouse! YES! Life in wineland is good.
SO -- we mentioned 95 points, right? Goodness, this will make your skin get goosebumpy, we think -- savory, ripe blue fruits for days, tons of that fantastic “garrigue” (sweet herbs like fennel and thyme) chocolatey earth, licorice and lavender….WOW wow wow! Under $40 is cray cray! Get it while we got it!!
Xavier Vignon has inherited two fundamental notions: the value of a job well done and the ability to transmit. They prove to be a driving force throughout his career. The time has come for him to express himself in his own name because Xavier Vignon wants above all to share with all lovers, neophytes or enlightened, the fruit of his passion: his wines.

He assembles his own wines under his signature by adding a touch of modernity to the sincere expression of the Rhone terroirs. Each vintage Xavier is the fruit of a meticulous work and a rigorous selection. The diversity of the Rhone terroirs, combined with the freedom offered by small structure, allows him, vintage after vintage, to select the wines that will allow Xavier's blends to combine concentration, minerality, and nobility of the fruit.
