A small parcel of powerhouse, finesse-filled new wines from Xavier Vignon just landed and you will want to jump VERY quickly on this one! A huge no-brainer if you love blockbuster Rhone wines…topped off with FREE SHIPPING on 3 or more!

With a huge 95-point score from Jeb Dunnuck, that is no small praise! Most Invino clients know how utterly fantastic pretty much ANYTHING from Xavier is, so we are BUSTIN’ with pride to have magnums of his sultry Beaumes de Venise. This is a three vintage blend (2015-2017) and it’s this unusual style that contributes to the silky, polished, fine feel these wines have. More like a killer Chateauneuf than anything else, really, it’s Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre and it will blow you away. Expect fabulous kirsch, raspberry ganache, bright red cherry, violets, lavender, perfumey spice notes, licorice, sweet herbs, and wonderful texture.

Xavier is a mad genius and we LOVE his wines…Trust your Napa Valley wine merchant when he says you need at LEAST a couple of these magnums — with free shipping on 3 or more, why wouldn’t you? 95 POINTS! Amazing. Treat yourself, people, seriously! Don’t miss this spectacular deal!

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. He assembles his own wines under his signature by adding a touch of modernity to the sincere expression of the Rhone terroirs. Each vintage Xavier is the fruit of meticulous work and a rigorous selection. The diversity of the Rhone terroirs, combined with the freedom offered by small structure, allows him, vintage after vintage, to select the wines that will allow Xavier's blends to combine concentration, minerality, and nobility of the fruit.

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.
