XAVIER VIGNON Arcane V Le Pape, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2010

<h2>Xavier Vignon Arcane V Le Pape Châteauneuf-du-Pape</h2> <p>The fruit for the Arcane V Le Pape is 100% Grenache from 100-year-old (at least) vines. From the 2010 vintage, Xavier selected thirteen barrels based on their mineral salt concentration and fifteen parcels across different terroirs of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.</p> <p>The fruit is all hand-harvested, destemmed and sorted at each vineyard. By contrast to the detailed work in the vineyard, the wine is made with little intervention. Once the fermentation is complete, the wine is racked into special barrels coopered with stainless steel hoops. These barrels are then themselves submerged into concrete tanks filled with Châteauneuf. This anaerobic, hyper-reductive ageing last for 60 months. After this, the wine is still not ready—seeing, as it does, another year in bottle.</p>

Region Chateauneuf-du-Pape

The most famous appellation of the region with a history of viticulture dating back to 1308, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is renowned for producing complex, spicy, full-bodied red wines of power and concentration. Up to 18 different varieties can be employed to make wine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but the vast majority of the red wine blends are still dominated by varying proportions of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The greatest wines of the appellation can cellar for well over two decades. A smaller amount of complex, fuller bodied white wine, blended from Grenache Blanc, Rousanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc is also made.
