Vignon honed his craft in the 1990s, working in Australia, Champagne and Bordeaux. In 1999, he struck out on his own, creating blends crafted from leftover barrels donated by friends. They were highly sought after from the start.
"The 2015 Gigondas (95% Grenache and 5% Mourvèdre) is a more medium-bodied, pretty wine that has an approachable feel in its ripe plum and blueberry fruits, violets and peppery herb aromas and flavors. It has ripe, supple tannin and good mid-palate depth, and it should drink nicely right out of the gate." 89-91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (December 2016)
"Dark red. Expansive, spice-accented black and blue fruit, Indian spice and licorice aromas, lifted by a peppery nuance. Smooth and alluringly sweet, offering sappy black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that gain energy as the wine opens up. In a plush, opulent style; a refreshing jolt of minerality adds cut to the long, gently tannic finish." 91 Points, Josh Raynolds (September 2017)
