Jean-Marc Diffonty is the 4th generation at this renowned domaine in Châteauneuf-du Pape. Robert Parker has been a follower of the domaine since their 1970 vintage and we are particularly excited to bring you their lovely Côtes-du-Rhône Réserve from the excellent 2016 vintage.
2016 was a great Rhône vintage with an Indian summer that stretched into the autumn. Look forward to reds with generous, ripe fruit and a juicy freshness
A classic Rhône blend, it’s made predominantly from Grenache with just a dash of Mourvèdre and Syrah adding peppery spice
Fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and traditional wooden vats, it’s rich, smooth and complex
Tasting note: Plush, ripe berry fruit comes to the fore with hints of spice, herbs, wood smoke and white pepper. We recommend decanting an hour before serving and enjoy with a hearty vegetable casserole or venison stew.
