Since 2013, Xavier has bottled miniscule quantities of wine from the legendary “La Landonne” vineyard, where he owns a tiny parcel planted by his father in 1981. Vinified with 75% whole clusters and aged for 18 months in 50% new oak (one new barrel out of the two produced), it is both kaleidoscopic and precise, with an outrageously spice-drenched nose suffused with dark-purple and black fruits. Amidst all this riotousness, however, the wine possesses an inner sense of calm, with sexily clenching tannins and just-so fruit; Xavier’s preternatural touch with extraction is on full display.
