Located in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Beaumes-de-Venise, not far from renowned winemakers, Xavier is in the best position to make elegant wines in these southern Rhone lands.
An inexhaustible playground, it is here that he creates the most finely tuned blends: resulting from the combination of the different types of terroir in each appellation, he guarantees the best possible balance.
His mission: to reveal the best of each appellation.
It all starts with the vines: the selected wines are always made from old, low-yielding vines.
And the least we can say is that these unpretentious cuvées, from well-known estates as well as small properties, reveal their strengths!
The diversity of the Rhone Valley's terroirs, combined with the freedom offered by the small size of the structure, allows him a wide margin of manoeuvre in his creations.
When he is not extracting the quintessence of a terroir, since his range of wines can be found under the Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes-du-Rhône, Gigondas, Cairanne, Vacqueyras, Rasteau, Ventoux, Muscat Beaumes-de-Venise and Beaumes-de-Venise, he blends different vintages and appellations to produce Vin de France with a disconcerting liberty in view of the quality of the cuvées.
Xavier Vignon certainly blends, but adds a touch of modernity to the sincere expression of Rhodanian terroirs.
Each cuvée is the result of meticulous work and rigorous selection.
Gentle extraction, limitation of inputs to the strict minimum: nothing to complain about, the respect for the fruit is there!
He competes with talent in the precision of the maturation and the sublimation of Grenache, his favourite grape variety.
Creative cuvées, each bearing the expert's signature, make Xavier Vignon a unique phenomenon in the wine world.
