Beautifully textured, balanced, and layered, with fabulous purity, it's a rocking wine that has loads of fruit, yet has the purity and elegance that makes this vintage so special quality.more reviews

"Amazing... (...) a silky and creamy texture with lush flavours. (...) A real treat!" R. Parker
"Les Amoureux" is a celebration of the 20-year-long love between Xavier and the wines of the Rhône Valley, as well as an excess of love for this wine and for all the wines of this vintage! For the first time, five of them have been brought together to express their typical characteristics, while avoiding the constraints for a beautifully balanced blend! The depth of Lirac, the strength of Gigondas, the fruit of Beaumes de Venise, the softness of Vacqueyras and the structure of Rasteau... Undoubtedly many feelings will emerge when tasting it...

This was a very good price for such a high quality, well made wine. It is full of power and expression and it is little wonder Xavier Vignon is held in such high regard. Hard to believe this is 'just' a Cote du Rhone. Splendid!

XAVIER VIGNON

Xavier Vignon is one of the most renowned oenologists in the Rhone wine region. He has worked as a consultant to more than 200 wineries in the Rhone Valley and has gained a worldwide reputation for his expertise and collaboration on the best wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. He started his own production in 2002, and the winery is now known for wines of exceptional quality and Xavier Vignon's own style of wine, both of which make him a successful winemaker. Elegant and well-balanced wines that beautifully reflect the terroir, because terroir and minerality are the philosophy of his work and not only in wine production, as he also runs an oenological institute, where he explores these aspects. His wines obtain the highest scores in the Robert Parker Guide.
