Tasting Notes:
Astonishing new addition to the Arcane series, this is a monumental achievement, a wine that has taken Xavier ten years to put together! We were lucky enough to taste the wine with Xavier in the summer of 2020 and again at leisure. It's fantastic but stocks are limited: don't miss it!

The blend is composed of 15 different, mainly late ripening variations of Grenache with a variety of rootstocks (Rupestris du Lot, Fercal, Riparia Gloire de Montpellier, 41B), clones (old clones) and pruning systems

Ageing : 1/3 in French and Austrian oak barrels, 1/3 in truncated wooden vats, 1/3 in concrete vats.

Critic Reviews:
'The NV Vin de France Arcane Le Fou is another unique wine from this incredible winemaker. This cuvée focuses on different clones of Grenache as well as just about every permitted variety out there (although it’s 85% Grenache). It has a big, sweet nose of blueberries, black cherries, lavender, and peppery incense as well as a full-bodied, layered, powerful yet seamless style on the palate. With no hard edges, silky tannins, and a big finish, it’s a singular wine (it’s mostly from vines in Châteauneuf Du Pape) to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.' 96/100 (Jeb Dunnuck)
