Xavier Cotes Du Rhone Villages Arcane Le Soleil 2015

Quote (from the 94-POINT Wine Advocate writeup): “Maybe the best Cote du Rhone Villages I've ever tasted, it looks to have the stuffing to go another 10 years.”

Another quote, from your friendly Napa-based wine merchant: “Totes gnar gnar. YOLO, buy as much as you can.”

Ah...seriously, though...we’ve sold a few of Xavier’s kickass, high-scoring Chateauneuf-du-Papes over the years, but when a Cotes du Rhone scores like this, from the Wine Advocate no less, we jump in with both feet, screaming and yelling from the rooftops. C’MON!! Insane QPR here (quality/price ratio) --- all we can say is DON’T delay, don’t put it off -- HURRY! We WILL sell out in record time…

We’re loathe to tell you how good this is, frankly, there is simply not enough to go around. SO --- don’t think about the masses of blue fruits, silky black cherry, or juicy, luxurious texture...no...don’t think about the sweet herbal notes and mocha, the pure bedazzling, mouthfilling richness...all at this astounding price. Just don’t!!

Needless to say...probably already gone…
