Xavier Vignon "Vieilles Vignes" Cotes du Rhone 2016

92+ Jeb Dunnuck
(2/15/2018) "The older vine cuvee of the estate is the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes and it is primarily Grenache blended with 15% each of Mourvedre and Syrah. In this case, the Mourvedre vines are 60 years in age and the Grenache vines are 45 years in age. Aged 12 months in 80% concrete tanks and 20% in barrel, its vibrant purple color gives way to a concentrated, medium to full-bodied 2016 that's much more reserved and tight compared to the other Cotes du Rhone releases, yet offers beautiful purity in its blueberry and blackberry fruit, as well as subtle notes of violets, charcoal, and pepper. With integrated acidity and fine, polished tannin, this is a serious Cotes du Rhone that's going to benefit from a year or two of bottle age and keep for a decade. Drinking window: 2018 - 2030."
