Why do we love this wine?

Fun fact: the father of Jean Marc Diffonty, who heads up operations at Château Sixtine, was the mayor of Châteauneuf-du-Pape for 30 years. That’s some serious dedication to the famous wine appellation, and the Diffonty’s phenomenal relationship with the land is on show in this ‘16 Châteauneuf-du-Pape blanc.

So this wine is a blend of 95% rousanne and 5% clairette and you’re looking at quite a rich, textured wine with orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavours. It picked up 93 points from International Wine Report, who reported “an excellent rich texture with wonderful depth,” and called it “a fantastic effort from Jean Marc Diffonty which is already showing remarkably well.” And with a wine of this quality, there are plenty of years left for it to evolve even more.
