This Châteauneuf du Pape 2000 is following in the footsteps of the legendary Châteauneuf du Pape 1972 which was bottled in early 2020. Both wines share the same origins although their journeys and ageing techniques are nothing alike. The Châteauneuf 2000 was aged according to Burgundian methods in wooden containers for the duration of the ageing process.
Xavier Vignon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2000 reveals intense balsamic notes on the palate complemented by roasted notes, juniper wood, dried fruits and gingerbread. White pepper and Sichuan pepper complete the aromatic profile.
