The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme is the flagship wine at Xavier Vignon. 2016 is one of the great Rhone vintages – and this is a super wine indeed.
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 offers a rocking bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, lavender, Asian spices, and graphite. Like all of Xavier’s 2016s, it has purity, freshness, and richness, yet still packs ample richness and depth. Give this full-bodied, elegant red another few years, and it will keep for a decade.
