Winemaker extraordinaire Xavier Vignon or commonly referred to as -- “The King of Rhone” -- has pulled off another supernatural and epic Rhone red!

 After years of traversing the globe, making wine in Napa Valley, Champagne, and Australia before settling in the Rhone Valley to zero in on the world’s most complex and unique blends. Robert Parker says it best when talking about his style: “It’s a singular, exotic beauty that I wish every reader could taste!” - “Hats off to the team here for having the guts to pull something like this off!”

 From the Rhone Valley’s leading wine consultant (and a Robert Parker favorite) this Cote du Rhone is pure opulence. Far and away one of the best reds at a price that makes this sellout an Expectation!

About the wine

Old vine Grenache, Syrah and a little Mourvèdre provide the basis for this lovely dense, supple and spicy wine. Côtes du Rhône wines already have a reputation for offering an exceptional price to quality ratio. But the Xavier Vignon's 2015 Vieilles Vignes takes this to extremes!

 A deep red with purple tints, the wine smells of black cherries and plums,classic garrigue herbal notes, liquorice and a sweet spice. On the palate, it is generous and wonderfully supple. Full of dark fruit, hints of pepper, liquorice and some clove all balanced by a fine acid backbone. This is great, dense, powerful and - we can not emphasize it often enough - a little miracle at this price!

 Harvest date is determined after daily tastings to check optimum maturity has been reached. The different grape varieties are harvested manually and fermented together at a moderate temperature. The maceration lasts 4 weeks. 60% of the wine is then aged in concrete tanks to ensure purity and the best possible expression of the grape variety. The remaining 40% is aged in oak barrels for 16 month in oak for added complexity

"The inky colored 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme is a serious winner in the vintage. A blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre and the rest Counoise, Vaccarèse and Muscardin, it offers a huge nose of blackberry jam, garrigue, crushed violets, and incense. Ripe, unctuous and opulent, yet not over the top, it reminds me of the Trois Source cuvée from Vieille Julienne. This is a smoking good release that will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and shine for over a decade."

We could barely wipe the smirks off our faces when this wine landed. We were told an exclusive “secret” vineyard, nestled between Duckhorn & Revana. It pushes concentration to the Max revealing a juicy core of black fruited distinction! Wow!

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
