If you like wine big, bold, dark, chewy then this is for you. There's a great smell of earth and fruit on opening and after half an hour in the glass it was drinking perfectly. There's no hurry to drink this and it's another great wine from the Xavier stable.more reviews

'Maybe the best Côte du Rhône Villages I've ever tasted' Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate.
Arcane XIX Le Soleil, another trump card in the Xavier Vignon range for our maximum pleasure!!! Tasted blind, it had all our sommeliers in agreement!! Its silky, soft tannins, its full-bodied yet sophisticated aspect and its sensational and seductive palate really impressed us. Here is a flavoursome wine with character that won't fail to amaze you! And just like the famous Arcanes, Le Diable and La Lune, in the logic of this series making reference to the trump cards of the French tarot, this is a one-off cuvée in a one-off vintage - there won't be another!!! Act fast!

Xavier Vignon's Arcane XIX le Soleil 2015 is a masterful blend that exemplifies the winemaker's artistry and the richness of the Rhône Valley. This red wine, part of the Arcane series, offers a deep garnet color and a complex bouquet of dark fruits, including blackberry and plum.

Rather fine Cote du Rhone despite its 15% alcohol content. A full-bodied wine with black cherry aromas. You can feel the alcohol when you open it, so don't hesitate to aerate it before tasting.

In the vein of Xavier Vignon's other wines, this is a well-crafted Côtes du Rhône village, with Grenache taking pride of place. Most of these wines have already been enjoyed, but a few have been 'forgotten' in the cellar for rediscovery at a later date.

Once again an Arcane from Vignon to fall in love with. A great cuvée of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Sparkling ruby red, spicy scent of dark berries and herbs, fruity, slightly woody on the palate, ripe tannins and strong spices. A great Rhone wine without a doubt.

Stunning on my first tasting with a daube.
Ripe fruit, controlled power.
A little Châteauneuf du Pape.
A little disappointed on the other tastings
but overall great value for money.

When you taste this wine, you quickly understand why it is called "Le Soleil". Intense red in colour, it does not disappoint on the palate, with black cherries, blackberries and floral notes such as thyme.

A very powerful, fleshy wine that fills the palate well. More spicy than fruity. For an 8-year-old Rhône wine, the tannins are curiously still a little astringent, but not too much, so aerate it well.

If you're looking for a lively, fruity wine that offers good value for money, Xavier Vignon is the place to go!
You can really feel the power of the southern Rhône Valley, so please don't go overboard with your palate.

First bottle opened with a fillet of duck and beans. Beautiful aromas, and after a few minutes in the glass, the tannins became super-silky. Simply superb! And again!

Surprised by the scores and the awards. The nose is pleasant. Very alcoholic, lacks finesse. Tasted on opening, after 2 hours decanting, and no improvement the next day. The same comments apply to the entire Arcane range, apart from the Devil, which is well worth the diversions. Bottle problem?

A producer who makes sublime wines. Incredibly complex and of exceptional quality. Masterly vinification.

Beautiful colour, roundness, thickness, body, pleasant on the palate without being really fruity. A very decent wine, but not my favourite. Fair price.

You can't get better value for money than Xavier Vignon! You can really feel the expertise of this winemaker in all these Rhône cuvées, so go for it and enjoy.

Powerful and warm with a good dose of spice, the chocolate/coffee nicely complements the more herbaceous and woody notes. Still young, but good quality to price ratio.

Xavier Vignon is still at the top of his game, with a silky, generous wine. Sweet plums, mellow tannins, fullness on the palate, but with a certain finesse. A fine finish.

A very aromatic and complex wine. Ripe red berries, spice, some wood, together with 15 vol.% make a great impression. A wonderful Rhone wine, especially good with dessert after a meal!

A superb Rhône Valley wine. Xavier Vignon has done it again.
It is still very young and can be cellared for a few more years.
