Jean-Marc Diffonty’s flagship red is a rich, opulent, no-holds-barred style of Châteauneuf. It offers layers of dark, smoky, red berry fruit complexity, with a rich seam of spice. An impressive red from this warm, intensely flavoured vintage.

The Diffonty family have been in Châteauneuf since the 17th century. First they grew olives and vegetables, only switching the focus to wine in 1902. That was when the family produced, bottled and sold their first vintage. Revolutionary at the time. Since 1993, 4th-generation Jean-Marc has run the estate, with a refreshingly modern approach in the vineyard and the cellar. Viticulture is sustainable and there's a gentle hand to the winemaking. 1998 saw the first release of their flagship wine Château Sixtine. It's crafted from the best grapes of the vintage – Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah from the oldest (50 to 115 years) vines. Fermented, then aged in part new oak, it's a rich, opulent wine that'll cellar well. Alternatively, decant early.

"Prune, sweet spice and lots of figgy notes. Chocolate mid palate and a clean layered finish" Alistair Cooper MW
