Tasting Notes:
Stupendously good red Beaumes-de-Venise. Needs a little time to mesh together but this will surely be the best wine ever made from this appellation.

Critic Reviews:
'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.' 95/100 Jeb Dunnock
