Natalie's Score: 92/100

Black raspberry and dark spice on the nose and palate of this huge southern French red wine blend from the Rhone Valley. The alcohol is high at 15%, so serve this at a slightly lower temperature than room temperature for a more refreshing, less warm/alcoholic mouth-feel. Pair with a rare steak.

Châteauneuf-Du-Pape food pairings: rib roast, Coq au Vins, slow-braised pork shoulder with garlic and thyme.

Reviews and Ratings

Diffonty Cuvée Du Vatican 2015 is a robust Châteauneuf-Du-Pape from the Rhône wine region. Great complexity on this flavoursome, juicy red with red currant, ripe red cherry, raspberry and an interesting array of spices -- anise, savoury and white pepper spice. Drink now and for the next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
