Huge congratulations to Xavier Vignon! This unexpected blend keeps all its promises. It's wine extract! This is enough to become a definitive fan of old Grenache. Difficult to precisely describe the aromas and flavors as they are numerous and delicious. more reviews

"The full-bodied, voluminous Chateauneuf du Pape Arcane La Papesse shows a surprising degree of elegance for such a big wine. Impressive." Robert Parker
We no longer need to introduce Xavier Vignon and his exceptional wines, but this deserves some particular attention. With a remarkably youthful, dark appearance, this wine gives notes of leather, cedar and dried spices, against a background of black cherry and plum on the nose. Displaying fine, silky tannins on the middle of the palate that gently dissolve into a lingering finish. This is an outstanding wine, which will age elegantly! A Châteauneuf-du-Pape with a distinctive character to sweep any wine enthusiast off their feet.

Here is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape that is worth the detour! A little marvel with intense aromas and delicate tannins. Its long finish leaves us speechless... not to be missed, for a moment of pure pleasure during tasting!

XAVIER VIGNON

Xavier Vignon is one of the most renowned oenologists in the Rhone wine region. He has worked as a consultant to more than 200 wineries in the Rhone Valley and has gained a worldwide reputation for his expertise and collaboration on the best wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. He started his own production in 2002, and the winery is now known for wines of exceptional quality and Xavier Vignon's own style of wine, both of which make him a successful winemaker. Elegant and well-balanced wines that beautifully reflect the terroir, because terroir and minerality are the philosophy of his work and not only in wine production, as he also runs an oenological institute, where he explores these aspects. His wines obtain the highest scores in the Robert Parker Guide.
