The 2010 Le Pape Arcane V vintage is the crowning glory of the range; a reference to the main piece of the Tarot deck, the major arcane the Pope, this red wine crowns its appellation with a masterly achievement and a revolutionary process. Indeed, the barrels have been locked in cement vats so as not to let an ounce of oxygen through... For five years!

The result: this blend of Xavier Vignon's best Grenache plots had only one objective: to make the greatest Grenache of a lifetime. It is now done.

Rich, incredibly full-bodied and racy, delivering a beautiful aromatic palette of wild berry and black fruit, flowers and spices, it is a moving ode to Grenache Noir, his unique grape variety. An exotic and singular beauty, an unprecedented achievement, a surge of complex and constantly renewed flavors. A great wine which you will enjoy for a long time to come.


Manual harvesting, vinification in vats, maturing in barrels enclosed in cement vats for 5 years.


Dark red with black and garnet reflections.


Delicate notes of wild berries, black fruits, flowers, juniper and spices mixed with a touch of chocolate.


Concentrated and racy with ripe and fresh fruit. With an incredibly full-bodied structure and smooth tannins, this wine seduces us with its graceful style and complex, ever-changing flavors.


Serve between 14 and 16°C in a large glass.

Food and wine pairing:

Beef cheek stew, roast rack of lamb with thyme, venison in cranberry sauce.

Cellar aging:

From now until 2030 and more for the enthusiasts
