The Châteauneuf Event of the Year
From one of Parker's all-time favorite estates

Here's news every French wine fan needs to hear about. And act upon. After years of asking, we've finally secured an exclusive release from the Diffonty family.

"A winery to watch … helping lead Châteauneuf-du-Pape
 to new levels of quality."
— Wine Spectator

The world's leading wine critic, Robert Parker, has long been a thirsty follower of Cuvée du Vatican. The 1970 vintage was the first case of Châteauneuf he ever bought — and he's a huge fan of more recent releases made by Jean-Marc Diffonty, "who has been doing a fabulous job here for more than a decade" (Parker).

Blessed by the Pope — reserved for YOU

Pope John XXII blessed Cuvée du Vatican back in 1958. They still send a case to Rome each year — and we'd love to send a six pack of Jean-Marc's Réserve de l'Abbé from the terrific 2012 vintage to your home.

Today, JUST $30 reserves you six bottles. When the wine is ready for delivery in early November, you'll be charged the balance ($149.94 plus $19.99 shipping and applicable tax). You'll have paid just $29.99 a bottle for a seriously cellar-worthy Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Orders must be placed by September 30th, though we recommend that you act sooner to avoid missing out.

See Jean-Marc's tasting note at right and reserve one of only 250 remaining six-packs today — you'll be very glad you did.
