Perhaps no bottle captures Xavier Vignon's spirit better than Cuvée Anonyme. One of the first creations from Xavier Vignon, made from vines co-planted amongst the region's oldest vines. The exact blend remains unknown, hence the name 'Anonyme', which is French for 'Anonymous'. Sourced from 100-year-old vines, from prime, galet-strewn terroirs, Anonyme 2017 has earned an impressive 95-97 points from Parker’s Wine Advocate. Jeb Dunnuck chimed in too, raving about Anonyme’s “sexy personality” and “sensational balance.” Cuvée Anonyme is selected from some of Xavier Vignon's best client’s best barrels, which he takes in lieu of payment when he finds wines of extraordinary quality. It is impossible to give the exact blend proportions of this vintage, which comes from 'collection vineyards', where numerous grape varieties are planted together; Centenarian Grenache, Vaccarèse, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Muscardin.

95-97 Points, Wine Advocate
“Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme adds toasty notes, cedar and vanilla to the whirlwind of fruit Vignon was able to harness in 2017. Blueberries, black cherries and stone fruit notes abound in this plush, full-bodied red that remains silky and focused on the long finish. It looks to be a terrific effort.”

94-96 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
“A wine that's going to compete with the 2015 and 2016, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme sports a deep purple color as well as a balanced, elegant, full-bodied, sexy personality that's already hard to resist. It has loads of dark fruits, peppery herbs, and violet notes, fine tannin, no hard edges, and sensational balance. It’s going to be approachable on release yet also evolve gracefully.”

Xavier Vignon是一位有遠見的創造者和葡萄酒釀酒師,對和諧與創造力懷有深深的熱情。他在法國上法蘭西大區長大,相信和諧是自然慷慨與人性的結晶。Xavier與一位釀酒師的邂逅改變了他的人生軌跡,讓他追尋葡萄酒釀造成為他真正的使命。憑借在法國香槟區、澳大利亞等地的豐富經驗和學習,Xavier積累了廣泛的知識和專業技能。

Xavier Vignon的葡萄酒釀酒理念圍繞著尊重自然和支持葡萄藤,而非主導它們。他致力於生產有機葡萄酒,並探索礦物質對葡萄酒風味的影響。創新是Xavier方法的重要組成部分。他不斷尋求陳釀葡萄酒的新方法,如開創性的Vinarium®技術。該方法涉及將葡萄酒桶浸入定制容器中,創造一個高濕度且無氧暴露的獨特陳釀環境。通過在這個受控環境中精心呵護葡萄酒,Xavier旨在保留和增強其香氣的多樣性。Xavier Vignon對於自然、創新和有機釀造的強調,產生了體現他的熱情和執著的卓越葡萄酒。

也許沒有一款酒能更好地捕捉到Xavier Vignon的精神,比如Cuvée Anonyme。這是Xavier Vignon的首批作品之一,由種植在該地區最古老葡萄藤之間的葡萄共同釀製而成。確切的混合比例仍然未知,因此取名為「Anonyme」,法語意為「匿名」。Cuvée Anonyme 2017來自百年老藤,來自優質的鵝卵石土壤,獲得了Parker's Wine Advocate給予的令人印象深刻的95-97分評價。Jeb Dunnuck也對Anonyme的「性感個性」和「出色的平衡」讚不絕口。Cuvée Anonyme是從Xavier Vignon最好的客戶的最佳橡木桶中選擇的,當他找到非凡品質的葡萄酒時,他會以此作為報酬。由於這款酒來自於「收藏葡萄園」,其中種植了多種葡萄品種,因此無法給出這款酒的確切混合比例。其中包括百年老歌海娜、瓦卡雷斯、康諾瓦茲、莫爾韋德、桑索、特雷特諾瓦和穆斯卡丁。

95-97分,Wine Advocate
「從桶中品嚐,2017年的Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme增添了烤麵包、雪松和香草的氣息,使Vignon在2017年能夠捕捉到的水果風味更加豐富。藍莓、黑櫻桃和石果的味道在這款豐滿、酒體飽滿的紅酒中充斥著,並且在長久的收結中保持絲滑和集中。看起來是一個了不起的努力。」

94-96分,Jeb Dunnuck
「這款酒將與2015年和2016年相媲美,2017年的Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme呈現深紫色,平衡、優雅、酒體飽滿、性感的個性已經難以抗拒。它擁有豐富的黑色水果、辛辣香草和紫羅蘭的氣息,細膩的單寧,沒有硬朗的邊緣,令人驚艷的平衡。它將在釋放時易於品嚐,同時也會優雅地演變。」
