Gérard, Xavier

Rhône Valley

There has been excitement surrounding young Xavier; “A domaine on the march!” says Livingstone-Learmonth. He is making some terrific wines and his 2016 Condrieu Côte Chatillon is arguably the most harmonious example we’ve tasted here; stylish depth, fresh and full of vivacity…beau vin and a shining example from a lovely white vintage. Drink this delicious white over the next 3-4 years. Xavier makes a wonderfully pure Syrah too; a blend of four prime terroirs – Mollard, Viallière, Brosse and Landonne – this is a Rôtie for the purists!
