2016 Xavier Vignon Rasteau Rouge - 90 PTS - WA

wa91"Nicely done all around, Xavier Vignon's 2016 Rasteau is full-bodied and slightly warm, but it does deliver complex notes of ground spices, ripe plums and supple tannins. Drink it over the next 5 years. - Joe Czerwinski"

2016 Xavier Vignon Rasteau Rouge - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Rasteau (75% Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvèdre) is a big, ripe, opulent effort that’s packed with full-bodied notes of blackberries, crushed rock, new leather and lots of minerality. It has sweet tannin, and while already impossible to resist, it will keep for 7-8 years."

2019 Xavier Vignon Rasteau Rouge - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"One of the few Vignon wines to see new oak (25%), the 2019 Rasteau is a blend dominated by Grenache, but with smaller amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre. Laced with scents of garrigue and green peppercorns, it offers mixed berries on the medium to full-bodied palate, and a bit more assertive tannin than seen in Vignon's other wines. That said, it's by no means unapproachable, and while it may be kept another year or so, it should be consumed over the next 5–7 years. - Joe Czerwinski"
