A very nice surprise on this magnificent wine which has a powerful and delicious nose of blueberries and black cherries. The palate sets this fabulous fruit mix in motion.more reviews

"A full-bodied style but without being stitched together (...) silky tannins and a very broad finish (...) Another unique wine of this incredible vineyard!" Jeb Dunnuck
The conclusion of a long-term project by Xavier Vignon: a blend of Champagne pushed to its peak! Five of the most popular vintages of recent years that are the expression of about 10 southern terroirs of the Rhône Valley including Chateauneuf du Pape, Rasteaux, Ventoux, the high-altitude plots of Côtes du Rhône Villages... All this around 15 varieties of Grenache, mainly late harvests.

Very powerful and present tannins. Remember to aerate it well before drinking it, it will only be better. To taste with a nice piece of meat to sublimate it. Special mention for this pretty bottle!

A wine that lives up to its name. Very powerful and tannins present, you would have to be crazy not to buy it and taste it immediately. Remember to aerate it well before drinking it, it will only be better.

But what a success! Once again Mr Vignon makes his talent as an assembler available to us! The Arcana is really my style! Magnificent wine, powerful and round, rich in character... At this price, it is unmissable!

A novelty from Xavier Vignon, and it's worth the detour. A wine full of character, powerful and fruity at the same time. This wine will please the Côtes du Rhône wine lovers.

Blind tasted, this wine had a real plebiscite. Xavier Vignon still does wonders with this cuvée "Le Fou". A real moment of pleasure, I recommend to all Côtes-du-Rhône lovers.

Interesting blend of Rhone region. Nice minerality, dark fruits aroma, pleasant tannins.

Xavier Vignon never disappoints. Another fine Rhone wine with smooth drinkability and a great find. Ready to drink with all the hallmarks of a high-end wine. Great value

This is the third Xavier red I've had, all excellent. Amoureux was probably the best of the group but Fou is my current house red, replacing Janasse Argile for the time being.

Plum and truffle aromas serve as a wonderful introduction to this wine. Very pronounced petrichor flavors pair beautifully with blackberry and leather. This is medium-full bodied and has a beautiful tannic structure.

I often wonder how far Xavier Vignon will go with his formidable Arcana... Each time, it is the same feeling of well-being that sets in... Power, fruit, elegance: another great cuvée!
