Xavier Vignon Arcane XV Le Diable Vallee du Rhone France 2015


Rhone Valley, France

750ml |15% ABV 

Grape Variety: 100% Mourvedre

94 Points Robert Parker 

There are two slightly eccentric wines from this estate that merit serious attention. Almost 100% Mourvèdre from a parcel close to Vinsobres, the sensational 2015 Vin de France Arcane XV Le Diable had a three-week maceration (Xavier prefers to get as much extraction as possible before alcoholic fermentation), and was aged mostly in small oak tanks and concrete. Blueberries, blackberries, peppery herbs and spice all flow from this layered, full-bodied beauty that has awesome purity, integrated acidity and plenty of structure. Give bottles 2-3 years and drink over the following 10-15 years.

  Pair this with a wide variety of rich red meat dishes, stews, T-bone steaks or slow roasted shoulder of lamb.
