If you’ve been a Invino client for any length of time, you probably have had a Xavier wine – we work closely with him and get access to many small-production wines he makes and we import them directly, cutting out all the middlemen. Xavier is a man who knows the terroirs of the southern Rhone Valley as well as anyone in the world, and with his massive roster of all-star clients that he consults for, it is no wonder how wines like this are possible. $21.95 for Arcane XV Le Diable is stunning! Read on!

Direct from the winery stash, we couldn’t wait to try this yesterday. Wow. We’re talking POWER, seriously rich and meaty (this wine had a 3 week maceration, so you can imagine the color and depth), with tons of toasted spice and baking spice, all in proportion to the intense Mourvedre fruit. Beautiful to drink now, absolutely, or keep it another 5+ years! Did we mention 94 POINTS, too?

A MUST for all-the-time drinking at our extraordinary price!


94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
There are two slightly eccentric wines from this estate that merit serious attention. Almost 100% Mourvèdre from a parcel close to Vinsobres, the sensational 2015 Vin de France Arcane XV Le Diable had a three-week maceration (Xavier prefers to get as much extraction as possible before alcoholic fermentation), and was aged mostly in small oak tanks and concrete. Blueberries, blackberries, peppery herbs and spice all flow from this layered, full-bodied beauty that has awesome purity, integrated acidity and plenty of structure. Give bottles 2-3 years and drink over the following 10-15 years.
