"Could it be one of the greatest red wines of Beaumes de Venise...?" Jeb Dunnuck
This wine is the result of a blend of multiple vintages that reveals the complexity of the high-altitude vineyards of Beaumes de Venise. The Trias areas are located at the foot of the Sarrasines peaks and the Grand Montmirail and reveal all their finesse and freshness. The goal is the search for how to offset the impact of global warming... The notes of black and red fruit but also the floral aromas (mainly lavender) are very elegant and offer a perfectly structured wine. A delight!

Dark red to purple colour, medium plus nose, aromas of black cherry, cassis and pepper. Round tannins, medium acidity and flavours of black fruits, leather and herbs. This is a delicious red Rhone wine!!!

One of Xavier Vignon's finest! It's a fabulous wine full of character, depth and complexity. It's one you'll come back to again and again - it never disappoints.

The Arcanum is very good. My second favourite after "the devil". It is very fine and very balanced.
It is the lightest of the Arcana. It can satisfy a large part of the public. With oriental dishes it is perfect.

Another successful Arcane by Xavier Vignon.
We tasted it with friends on a lamb tagine with prunes and it's magic!
The palate is so pleasantly configured with a silky length that never ends. Excellent QP ratio

A revelation! Thank you Xavier Vignon. A perfectly made wine combining aromatic complexity, volume and a beautiful freshness. The tannins are greedy, the finish generous, a beautiful tasting full of emotion. This wine sublimated my guinea fowl stuffed with ceps.

A great wine from Xavier Vignon whose reputation is growing. Very black fruit driven, it is powerful but probably less so than the other Arcana. Drink now

This Beaumes de Venise predicts with the Arcanum "L'étoile" a beautiful tasting, dark colour, nose of black fruits, blackcurrant, with a nice balance on the palate.

Disappointed at first sight but it deserved either a decanting or a little more airing. Once this was done, it really revealed itself.
The last few glasses were much better than the first.
As for the other Arcana, without question, you have to like powerful wines.

ELEGANT, clearly we are talking about a 15 degree wine
On the nose cherries in spirit, in the mouth it reflects the nose
A medium to long persistence
Satisfying, tannin not present
A bitter finish that cleanses the mouth
I was pleasantly surprised and convinced!

Without doubt one of the best Beaumes de Venise wines I have ever tasted, with fantastic ageing potential, like any self-respecting Southern Rhône. Silky, powerful, rich in aroma and beautiful length.

This wine suffers from a difficult comparison with the rest of the Arcane range, for fans of tannic wines.
It is, however, lighter, fruitier and more accessible with sweet and savoury dishes, where it will not overwhelm the flavour, but will be a marvellous match.

A superb, complex, well-balanced, gourmet wine that will delight the taste buds of novices and the most discerning connoisseurs alike. Xavier Vignon's wines are, on the whole, always ripe fruit, sunshine and spices, but each vintage is a journey, and this one is a road trip.

A Beaumes de Venise at its best. Once again, Xavier Vignon manages to perfectly blend Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Taste of dark berries, slightly peppery. Full-bodied, elegant, fruity on the palate.

A rather convincing first experience with Xavier Vignon's Arcane range. Very typical Côte du Rhône, of course, with the flagship grape varieties.
It should be drunk slightly chilled because of the high alcohol content, but it's a very smooth, pleasant wine with plenty of substance.

When you enjoy Rhône wines, all Xavier Vignon wines are a must. This wine is further proof of that: voluptuous, powerful, round, very jammy black fruit - in short, brilliant!

Sorry for the low score, I was expecting something so much more suave from a Baume de Venise... I found it quite aggressive with a rather unpleasant bitterness. I've bought all the Arcana, but so far it's the first one that's disappointed me, although I've decanted it in a decanter...

This cuvée reveals the complexity of Beaume de Venise's high altitude terroirs. This wine reveals soils of great finesse. Notes of black and red fruit, combined with floral aromas, especially lavender, give this wine a rare elegance and perfect structure.

It's Xavier Vignon at heart, no more and no less, with a lovely, straightforward attack that gives way to a more complex, well-crafted wine. In the same vein as the other "Arcane" wines.

A deep, full-bodied wine. Very dense on the palate. It goes perfectly with toasted red meats. I also enjoyed drinking it on its own.
