"Gorgeous on all counts, it’s a shockingly good Côtes du Rhône." Robert Parker
Praised by the world's greatest wine critic. Quite rare for a Côtes-du-Rhône! S.M thus refers to both the Northern (Septentrional) and Southern (Méridional) parts of the Rhône Valley with a beautiful blend of different vintages. Ready to drink, this is an intense and complex cuvée with a powerful aromatic background! A single sip of this S.M. cuvée slams the palate with a delightful and enjoyable finish.

As usual, Xavier Vignon is producing well and this SM cuvée is a real Rhône wine, strong in alcohol but still well balanced. The bottle is pretty.

Once again Xavier Vignon offers us something very fine and very complex. The aromas of black fruits emerge from the opening, in the mouth it is very ample, round with a good length! However, there is still a little too much alcohol for my taste in this wine.

A great Côtes du Rhône. Drinking very nicely now. Showing black fruits with chocolate Oak vanilla flowers coffee and peppercorn. Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs. Big and bold with firm tannins on the finish. Feels like a California Cabernet Sauvignon.

Great blend!
Medium intensity nose of plum, blackberry, cherry, licorice, pepper, violet, cured meat, leather and olives.
Medium+ acidity, medium+ body with medium silky tannins, high flavour intensity and medium+ finish.
Great structure, really good balance, fruit and ageing potential.

lovely depth and flavour, quite rich in berry and fruit notes, think plum, blackcurrent with a touch of cocao. Very deep flavour with a very consistent finish.
