XAVIER Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Xavier 2012

Xavier Chateauneuf-du-Pape (first vintage 2007) is a plush style made from a blend of grenache (typically 55%), mourvèdre (35%) and shiraz (10%). The wine is assembled from up to 120 component so its exact makeup can vary from year to year. Dark fruits, pepper and spice and herbal notes are all up-front and the wine can be consumed young. Grenache typically comes from 90+ year old vines and mourvèdre from 75+ year olds. The shiraz and mourvèdre is matured in a combination of new and one and two year old barriques and the grenache in large, old oak barrels. Xavier Vignon, based in the Rhône, is an influential and sought-after consultant with experience in Australia, New Zealand and U.S. as well as, in France, Alsace, Champagne and Bordeaux (St-Emilion). <br> <br> <p><a style="font-size: 16px; margin-top: 15px; white-space: normal; max-width: 100%;" href="/southern-rhone-selection/" target="_self" class="btn btn-lang-red">Explore Southern Rhone Wines &gt;&gt; </a></p>

Region Chateauneuf-du-Pape

The most famous appellation of the region with a history of viticulture dating back to 1308, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is renowned for producing complex, spicy, full-bodied red wines of power and concentration. Up to 18 different varieties can be employed to make wine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but the vast majority of the red wine blends are still dominated by varying proportions of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The greatest wines of the appellation can cellar for well over two decades. A smaller amount of complex, fuller bodied white wine, blended from Grenache Blanc, Rousanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc is also made.
