Xavier Vignon Arcane L'Etoile Beaumes de Venise NV (Magnum 1.5L)

Rhone Blends  |  France


If you love super-light, easy-going red wine, MOVE ALONG. This is intense, concentrated, and structured in the classic Xavier Vignon style. Big bottles for a big wine...all at our remarkable price!

70% grenache, 20% syrah, and 10% mourvèdre. Composed of 2015-2017 vintages, this beast of the Southern Rhone should probably ONLY come in magnums or larger…this is a vinous party in a bottle – a must for your next gathering. 95 POINTS, almost 29% OFF, made in the modern, plush style of Xavier’s beloved Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines. The fruit comes from rocky, high-elevation plots in Beaumes de Venise, the Southern Rhone’s hardcore up-and-coming rockstar appellation in our professional estimation.

The mind reels with Xavier’s wines – this man pulls magic out of a hat time and time again, and there is seemingly no limit to what he can do. Jeb Dunnuck calls this release “...a beautiful, full-bodied, elegant wine that might just be one of the greatest red wines to come from Beaumes de Venise.” Well, Jeb, we can’t really improve on that because…YES. The multi-vintage blend adds a whole new level of silkiness, harmony, and balance that, again, people, good people, at our PRICE, is simply astonishing.

The perfumey, dark, mysterious yet elegant aromas just SLAP. Pastilles, sweet white flowers, licorice, red whips, toasted peppercorn, sweet grilled herbs, and so much lovely, soft, flowing red/blue fruits….it’s just…immensely satisfying. 95 POINTS, and the craziest price you’ll EVER see if you could even find this wine!! Happy Day….don’t miss it!!!

About the Producer

Oenologist consultant for twenty years in Chateauneuf du Pape and Southern Rhone Valley, Xavier Vignon is considered one of the most prominent consultants in the region.

95 Jeb Dunnuck -
Coming from the higher elevation sites, the NV Beaumes de Venise Arcane Etoile is another elegant, finesse-oriented wine from Xavier that has both richness and freshness. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre as well as a small amount of Viognier from 2015, 2016, and 2017, it has something profound in its texture and balance. Notes of black raspberries, currants, dried flowers, lavender, and pepper are followed by a beautiful, full-bodied, elegant wine that might just be one of the greatest red wines to come from Beaumes de Venise.
