Review

Arcane XV Le Diable is another great wine from Xavier Vignon’s Arcanes collection. Vignon is one of the top winemakers in the region and all his wines, including Le Diable, enjoy well-deserved praise and top ratings from specialist wine critics.

Xavier Vignon tempts us with this wonderful blend of Mourvèdre grapes from 17 different plots among the best terroirs in Vaucluse, although it is produced under the general appellation label of Vin de France. Grapes are collected by hand and then selected according to their mineral salts content. They then undergo a cold maceration process for 3 weeks to enhance their aromatic development and to obtain an optimum extraction of the fruit. An extremely precise vinification combined with time spent ageing in new Austrian oak barrels creates a pleasantly surprising result.

With an intense red colour bordering on black, it is a wine packed full of fruit which immediately delights the nose with aromas of scrubland, blackberries and other dark fruits, and hints of spices. In the mouth, it is a well-structured and balanced wine with elegant tannins and significant salinity. All in all, a splendid Rhône wine ready for drinking now or for laying down for up to ten years.

Super vin

C'est la première fois que je goûtais un vin de Xavier Vignon et j'ai vraiment été agréablement surpris. Vin très agréable à boire et pas du tout fort malgré la teneur en alcool. Très bon monastrell! A recommander

Top Rhone Mourvedre at a affordable price

Deep and rich. If u cannot afford a great Rhone try this. Long sensuous finish. Chocolate and prunes. Mourvèdre with meaty, char-like quality, strong secondary notes that do not overpower the fruit. A feast

Ottimo

Note di tabacco, tannino, sapore persistente. Gustato dopo averlo aperto da un paio d'ore.
