Xavier Vignon Vacqueyras 2012

Tasting Notes:   Purple and ruby notes. Fine and silky nose with subtle notes of raspberry, liquorice and vanilla. Great structure, flexible and round tannins, pleasant smooth, long finish.


Review:

Possessing slightly more texture and depth than the Gigondas, the 2012 Vacqueyras is another wine from this team that shows it terroir beautifully. Ripe, upfront, medium to full-bodied and voluptuous, it gives up beautiful dark berry fruit, violets, licorice and herbs on the nose. It too should drink beautifully over the coming 7-8 years.

This is another impressive lineup from oenolgist Xavier Vignon, who works with the likes of Raymond Usseglio, Le Nerthe, Marcoux and Grand Veneur, to name a few. These are all negociant wines, but they obviously have access to some serious vineyard, and the winemaking is impeccable. Looking at these latest releases, his 2013s buck the vintage stereotype with their ripe, textured profiles, and his 2012s are certainly up with some of the top wines of the vintage as well. In addition, prices remain more than reasonable here. If you haven’t yet discovered these wines, now is a great time. As a side note, I’m halfway through a case of his 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape, with every wine showing brilliantly. These can drink nicely in their youth, yet age beautifully as well. - Wine Advocate 91 Points

Review:

Aromas of blue flower, plum, baking spice and an earthy whiff of porcini mushroom float out of the glass. The chewy palate doles out succulent black cherry, ground black pepper, clove and a hint of game against a backdrop of tightly wound tannins and fresh acidity. - 92 Points Wine Enthusiast

Winery: Alessandro Rivetto

Alessandro, who was born in 1969, has always been involved in the world of wine as a family heritage so acquiring deep experience in the wine branch. In fact, his knowledge of wine derives from the long tradition of his family, who started producing their own wine at the beginning of last century when his great-grandfather Giovanni and later on his grandfather Ercole transformed their farm producing and selling grapes into a wine estate becoming wine-makers. From their experience Alessandro learned the unconditioned, deeply-rooted love for this land and his work, which, with the support of his innate commercial ability, in 2012 lead him to start a new challenging business project.


He needed and had courage, confidence in his force, dedication, infinite passion, and, why not, also a bit of insanity, since for any change in our life we cannot leave out these elements that form Alessandro Rivetto’s personality.

Wine was slightly filtered before bottling to ensure wine will remain stable.

Ideal for the Aperitif , any cooked fish such as smoked and grilled salmon but also obviously with a Goat Cheese.
