What does it taste like ...
"An amazingly deep experience"
Standing for Septentrional and Meridional, S/M by Xavier Vignon allies the best of Northern and Southern Rhone blend in an outstanding blend of eighty year Grenache and sixty year old Syrah vines.
R. Parker gave this Non Vintage blend 94/100 points:
"SM is thrilling stuff. Made from 50/50 Grenache and Syrah and aged half in concrete and half in barrel, it offers a full-bodied, voluptuous and decadent style to go with overflowing notes of plum and darker fruits, liquorice and violets. Gorgeous on all counts, it's a shockingly good Côtes du Rhône..."
Not many people are able to create a wine that score this high in international rankings and then offer it in this price range.
What is it made of ...
Grenache 50%, Syrah 50%
Ready to drink now, it may be kept until 2026
