'Arcane Le Fou' Red Rhone Blend

Even entry level Xavier is fantastic. Can’t produce a bad wine this guy! Balanced but earthy Rhone blend. Strong tannins still, but not overwhelming. A little herbaceousness on the back palette! — 23 days ago

Cuvée Anonyme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

What a lovely Pape
Presents a soft but complex collection of berries - cran and boysenberry for me
Its got a sorta powerful and well rounded body - full bodied for sure with some earth and stone and a long ass finish
Drifting to my next sip

Arcane XIX Le Soleil Grenach Blend 2015

Second tasting and still as much pleasure. Deep ruby color, with a beautiful shine. The nose is greedy, on the fruits, between juice and jam, black cherry, plum, blackberries, strawberry. Spicy and roasted notes typical of southern wines, chocolate, pepper, thyme and aromates, smoky touch. The mouth is soft, beautiful texture. Greedy and balanced with volume and flexibility. The 15 degrees are absolutely not felt. Nice finish on black fruits and licorice. To have in his cellar absolutely.

Deuxième dégustation et toujours autant de plaisir. Robe rubis profonde, au bel éclat. Le nez est gourmand, sur les fruits, entre jus et confiture, cerise noire, prune, mûres, fraise. Notes épicées et torréfiées typique des vins du sud, chocolat, poivre, thym et aromates, touche fumé. La bouche est moelleuse, belle texture. Très gourmand et équilibré avec du volume et de la souplesse. Les 15 degrés ne se font absolument pas sentir. Très belle finale sur les fruits noirs et réglisse. A avoir dans sa cave absolument.

Arcane XV Le Diable Mourvedre 2015

Another fabulously pure wine in this eclectic range of southern Rhône experimental cuvées from Xavier Vignon, this time a 100% Mourvèdre from old vines around Vinsobres, from the 2015 vintage.

The nose is large and herbaceous with a great juxtaposition of floral qualities with waves of deep, generous, dark fruit. There’s also spice, camphor, and vanilla best sniffed from a large glass.

The wine is full bodied on the palate, but with great purity and very supple tannins. The finish finds a sweet note and carries on with good length.

Impressive stuff for a Vin de France priced at around £15-20. This is so youthful even now with seven years of age, so I’d love to try it again in years to come.
