Jeb Dunnuck, 95 points
"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."

Boy, there’s days around here that really blow a wine-seller's mind, and this is one. Super-consultant Xavier Vignon (you’ve had some of his outrageous Chateauneuf-du-Pape from us) sold us a tiny parcel of his smashing Beaumes de Venise Arcane L'Etoile. DO. NOT. MISS!

Heads up - Beaumes de Venise is the new Chateauneuf, except it’s about 500% less $$$ (and just east of Chateauneuf proper). Consultant oenologist for twenty years at Chateauneuf du Pape and in the southern Rhone valley, Xavier Vignon is considered to be one of the leading consultants in the region. Xaiver Vignon blends, unders his name, his own wines adding a touch of modernity to the true expression of Rhoanien terroirs. Rich, dark, pure and utterly delicious, we hope you like rich, velvety, powerful-yet-elegant reds as much as we do. THE PRICE! Stunning, really.

We have just a small parcel to sell today at this jaw-dropping price. While it lasts!
