Single varietal Monastrell. A real beast, perhaps the alcoholic content is more noticeable than its arcane siblings. Nice to drink with grilled meats.

Fantastic wine! Powerful full of black fruit and spices. Huge body with great structure and a very good acidity. A wine that should give an excellent proof in about 2 to 3 years.

Pure Mourvedre partially matured in wood, in the glass it is opaque ruby, the nose starts with notes of Boer and then brings out notes of incense and prune, the taste is tannic, herbaceous and very fresh, very long finish, excellent price

Dark and spicy Mourvédre (Monastrell) varietal, ripe and full-bodied, perhaps at the optimum point of ripeness. Long, cozy, it's perfect for these colder days, with pot food.

As always, Xavier Vignon brings us a fantastic wine experience. Le Diable brings a beautiful red colour, with some transparency. On the palate it presents a great acidity, balanced. Notes of some spices in a slightly prolonged finish. Good structure and balance.

Le diable was the first Xavier Vignon wine I tasted. I thought it was good and, how should I put it, very unconventional: a little weak on the olfactory level, it does, however, have a truly original flavour. Excellent with meat sauces.

Xavier Vignon's Diable is an excellent choice for those looking for a powerful and complex red wine made from the Mourvèdre grape.

On the nose, it offers intense aromas of black fruits such as blackberry, plum and black cherry.

Mourvedre in purity. A rarity, vintage 2015, one of the few Vignons that really managed to impress me, fruit very evident. Probably a little unbalanced in terms of alcohol, but worth trying.

Despite the glowing reviews and the Parker score, I have to admit that this wine struck me as unremarkable and unoriginal. A Côte du Rhone, nothing more and Vignon, even if he works well, seems to be resting on his laurels and mass-producing for everyone!

This is a wonderful discovery. On the nose, the attack is very complex, with notes of undergrowth, hay and, among other things, a little honey (lime blossom). I tend to go for a home-cooked food pairing, otherwise you'll never be disappointed when you buy a Peking duck.

A 100% Mourvedre that best represents this blend. Very full-bodied, with soft tannins. Hints of blackberry and tobacco, one has the sensation of taking a bite out of ripe red fruits! Outstanding, to be tried at least once, while it is still available. Unbeatable price for the quality offered.

I expected more from a wine that has received 94 PK. It is a powerful wine that needs to be decanted to be appreciated. Once decanted, the wine improved and we could appreciate the fruit. In the end, we liked it, and we are looking forward to trying some more from the Arcane collection.

The wine is ready to drink. Deep, intense carmine colour. Blackberry aromas, followed by blackcurrant, garrigue and truffle aromas that are much more discreet, but with a strong black olive aroma.
