Description

A full-bodied and elegant Beaumes de Venise wine

The estate

For over twenty years, the exceptional winegrower, Xavier Vignon, has been considered one of the finest experts in the Southern Rhône Valley. Each wine by Xavier Vignon accurately reflects the desire to reveal the identity of the fine Rhône Valley terroirs, all while expressing his own identity: the Xavier Vignon identity. His exclusive innovations only enhance his creativity, such as the Arcane collection, which promises to take wine lovers on an incredible sensory wine tasting experience.

The vineyard

All the wines by Xavier Vignon stem from the Rhône Valley. For the Arcane collection, the winemaker meticulously selects his terroirs in order to explore their full potential. The Arcane L'Étoile stems from the Beaumes de Venise vineyard, located on the fringe of the Gigondas appellation, and from three different vintages: 2015, 2016 and 2017. The vines are grown at an altitude of 600 metres and are planted on Triassic soils made up of sand, limestone and clay, resting at the foot of the Dentelles Sarrasines and the Grand Montmirail.

The wine

The Star, a symbol of balance and peace, also pays tribute to a luxuriant surrounding nature. Xavier Vignon's Arcane L'Étoile weaves the 2015, 2016 and 2017 vintages together to create a star that reveals the complexity of the high-altitude terroirs.

Vinification and ageing

This Beaumes de Venise Arcane L'Étoile wine underwent a long maceration without mechanical extraction. The wine is then aged for 15 months, alternating between new French and Austrian barrels (1/3), small concrete vats (1/3) and tuns.

The blend

Grenache (70%), Syrah (20%) and Mourvèdre (10%).
