Xavier Roger

Mastering the nuances of Southern French varietals and combining traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Xavier Roger wines are a superb example of the quality that are now being produced in the South of France. Using the best parcels in the area, the quality of the range is truly outstanding and demonstrates the quality of wines that can be produced in this area of France.

Tasting Notes

Deep dark red. Beautiful flavours of dark fruits, amplified with hints of coffee, cocoa and subtle rosemary. Wonderfully harmonic with a round and juicy mouthfeel.

Food Matches

Try alongside roast beef with thyme and fennel crust.

Vinification

Part of the harvest goes through thermovinification in order to support the fruity aromas. The majority of the grapes is destemmed and sent to maceration for about ten weeks. This long process is ideal to extract the character of the variety and to get a good structure with supple tannins.
