Le Prince de Courthézon Prestige 2018
This special-edition Rhône blockbuster arrives from Thierry Ferlay, one of our favorite Châteauneuf winemakers, and the fantastic 2018 vintage. It boasts a history of gold-medal acclaim and waves of powerfully rich, red- and black-fruit flavors.
Benedictus de Vatican 2019
A thrilling release from Parker-praised winemaker Jean-Marc Diffonty that’s 20 years in the making. Benedictus is a lusciously rich blend featuring his best Châteauneuf-du-Pape, made in honor of our longstanding friendship. Not to be missed.
Château Lestours Clocher 2015
Châteauneuf is more famous and commands the highest prices, but savvy fans know neighboring Vacqueyras produces equally fabulous (and more wallet-friendly) reds. This “sexy and deeply perfumed” example from the historic Arnoux clan proves the point.
Château Sixtine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2017
Jeb Dunnuck rates Château Sixtine 97 points; Wine Spectator's singled it out as one of 2017's top Châteauneufs (alongside iconic Beaucastel). Factor in the already-legendary quality of the 2017 harvest, and you've got one unmissable wine.
Benedictus de Vatican 50th Anniversary 2018
The Diffonty family is one of the oldest winemaking dynasties in France’s southern Rhône Valley and our longest-standing Châteauneuf producer. To toast that wonderful partnership, they’ve sent this commemorative release from the superb 2018 vintage.
Château Sixtine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018
Decanter rates Château Sixtine 93 points; Jeb Dunnuck scores it 91-93 points; and it placed #2 in the Châteauneuf village’s annual competition. Factor in the excellent quality of the 2018 vintage, and you’ve got one unmissable wine.
Cuvée du Vatican Réserve de l'Abbé Côtes du Rhône 2019
Long-time Cuvée du Vatican devotee Robert Parker raves that winemaker Jean-Marc Diffonty is “doing a fabulous job.” His skills are on full display in this juicy Réserve. Its ripe red fruit and wild herb characters are the perfect foil for roast lamb.
