Palate Profile

"One of the greatest red wines to come from Beaumes de Venise!" - Jeb Dunnuck -

Xavier Vignon's Arcane l'Etoile is an exclusive non-vintage bottling, consisiting of 70 percent Grenache, 20 percent Syrah and 10 percent Mourvèdre. A multi vintage blend from 2015, 2016 & 2017, that reveals the complexity and remarkable freshness of the high-altitude Beaumes de Venise terroirs. 

Xavier’s wines are the result of meticulous blending of carefully selected wines. They usually contain no residual sugar, are aged in oak and marked by an intense character, along with a signature minerality. His range includes several wines from the Côtes-du-Rhône, and his flagship cuvée is ‘Châteauneuf-du-Pape Anonyme’, sourced from several different parcels owned by Vignon’s top clients, scattered around the appellation. The exact varietal composition of the blend changes from year-to-year but may include all 13 allowed by the appellation. He also produces a selection of multi-vintage, multi-appellation blends.

“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." 95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
