The 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme is the flagship wine at Xavier Vignon. This is a treat to be able to offer it in LARGE FORMAT!
A wine consisting mostly of Grenache that was sourced from numerous terroirs throughout Châteauneuf-du-Pape and brought up in a mix of tank and barrels. It is impossible to give the exact blend proportions of this vintage, which comes from “collection vineyards” where numerous grape varieties are planted together. Centenarians Grenache, Vaccarèse, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Muscardin. All the Châteauneuf du Pape terroirs are represented in this cuvée, for a great complexity and a beautiful minerality.
It offers a rocking bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, lavender, Asian spices, and graphite. Give this full-bodied, elegant red another few years, and it will keep for a decade.
