94/100 - PARKER
"There are two slightly eccentric wines from this estate that merit serious attention. Almost 100% Mourvèdre from a parcel close to Vinsobres, the sensational 2015 Vin de France Arcane XV Le Diable had a three-week maceration (Xavier prefers to get as much extraction as possible before alcoholic fermentation), and was aged mostly in small oak tanks and concrete. Blueberries, blackberries, peppery herbs and spice all flow from this layered, full-bodied beauty that has awesome purity, integrated acidity and plenty of structure. Give bottles 2-3 years and drink over the following 10-15 years."

Arcane Le Diable 是一款100%非常古老的Mourvèdre(有些超過百年)混釀的葡萄酒,其選擇是基於礦物鹽含量,在沃克吕兹地區的不同地區以極小的產量進行的。

94/100 - PARKER:
"這個酒莊有兩款稍微古怪的葡萄酒值得嚴肅關注。2015年的Vin de France Arcane XV Le Diable幾乎100%來自於靠近Vinsobres的一塊葡萄園,進行了三周的浸漬(Xavier更喜歡在酒精發酵之前盡可能提取更多物質),並且主要在小型橡木罐和混凝土中陳釀。藍莓、黑莓、辛辣草本和香料的味道在這款層次豐富、酒體飽滿的美酒中流露出來,具有出色的純度、完美的酸度和充足的結構。將酒瓶陳年2-3年,然後在接下來的10-15年內享用。"
