Description

A divine Châteauneuf-du-Pape of singularity, fullness and elegance

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 2010 Arcane V Le Pape is made from century-old Grenache vines that are planted on famous terroirs in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

The wine

The epitome of a timeless, powerful expression and a forward-looking attitude, Le Pape commands respect. This exceptional wine produced in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation also confirms Vignon’s deep knowledge regarding this mythical terroir that inspires many.

Vinification and ageing

Xavier Vignon has achieved an incredible technical feat by combining, in an unprecedented manner, the vinification and ageing processes that give the wine its unique expression. Following manual harvesting with sorting in the vineyard and destemming, the grapes are very rarely handled. Once fermented, the wine was placed in special barrels with stainless steel hoops. The barrels were then plunged into tanks, which were themselves filled with Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Protected for 60 months from the effects of oxidation, the wine was left in the bottle for a further year before being put on the market.

The blend

Grenache (100%).
