2010 Xavier Vignon Arcane V Le Pape (1.5L)

Grenache from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône, France


Aged in barrels that were immersed in wine within a concrete vat, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Arcane V Le Pape was bottled in 2015. It's 100% Grenache and presents a rich, velvety mouthfeel, spicy, plummy fruit and a long, open-knit finish. A unique take on élevage, it should drink well for more than a decade.

A 100% Grenache sourced from numerous terroirs in the appellation, the 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Arcane Le Pape offers a lovely bouquet of blackberries, saddle leather, garrigue, and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and silky, it's still tight and backward on the palate, with good acidity, building tannin, and a great finish. It's going to hit prime time in 2-3 years and keep for a decade.
