Thanks to our direct relationship with the domaine, we have been offered a fantastic parcel from Xavier Vins of their incredibly well-priced NV Cotes du Rhone S. M.


Scoring 94 points and coming in at a fraction over GBP 11 in bond per bottle, the Wine Advocate's Rhone expert Jeb Dunnuck describes the S M as “Gorgeous on all counts, it’s a shockingly good Côtes du Rhône”…high praise indeed.


Xavier Vins is masterminded by one of the most highly respected and well-connected winemakers in the Rhone: Xavier Vignon. Having worked as a consultant for many of the big names in Chateauneuf, he has access to some of the highest quality parcels in the region. In the words of Dunnuck:


“Xavier Vignon works with the likes of Raymond Usseglio, Le Nerthe, Marcoux and Grand Veneur, to name a few. These are all negociant wines, but they obviously have access to some serious vineyard, and the winemaking is impeccable.” (Oct 2014)


A blend of ’10, ’11 and ’12 made from 50% Syrah from the northern Rhone and 50% Grenache from the south, known as the Septionale and Meridionale respectively in French (hence the name), Xavier had to declassify to Cotes du Rhone, keeping the price far below what it may otherwise have been.
