Domaine Martin Rasteau 2017
Rasteau’s recent elevation to Cru status has propelled it “into the big leagues,” says Decanter. Hailing from the Martin family’s small estate and the Rhône’s exceptional 2017 vintage, this barrel-aged beauty brims with spicy berry charm.
Domaine du Vallon Plan de Dieu 2017
From the village of Plan de Dieu (neighbor to storied Châteauneuf-du-Pape), this HUGELY acclaimed red was made at the Meffre family’s 460-plus-year-old estate and brims with ripe berry and spicy, wild-herb notes.
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.
