Description

The Arcane range from Xavier Vignon is one of the most interesting we have come across in a long time, so therefore we are incredibly excited to have them available to sell. Not only are the labels pieces of art – the wines are super as well. The concept of being NV (non-vintage) is extraordinary.

This wine is made up of 5 different vintages from the most outstanding of recent years, grown across 10 different terroirs in the Southern Rhone valley. (including Châteauneuf du Pape, Rasteau, Ventoux and high altitude parcels in Côtes du Rhône Village).

The blend is composed of 15 different, mainly late ripening variations of Grenache with a variety of rootstocks.

85% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah, 5% Caladoc (to impart spice and structure).

The NV Vin de France Arcane Le Fou is a unique wine from this incredible winemaker. This cuvée focuses on different clones of Grenache as well as just about every permitted variety out there. It has a big, sweet nose of blueberries, black cherries, lavender, and peppery incense as well as a full-bodied, layered, powerful yet seamless style on the palate. With no hard edges, silky tannins, and a big finish, it’s a singular wine (it’s mostly from vines in Châteauneuf Du Pape) to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.
