Benedictus de Vatican 50th Anniversary 2018

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.
Cabalié Vieilles Vignes 2018
Hervé Sabardiel, maker of our popular Cabalié, is so grateful for its success, he’s crafted a special, old-vine version to delight its fans. Made in the style that bolstered Roman soldiers 2,000 years ago, it’s ultra rich and boasts a top gold medal.
Château L'Esparrou Cuvée Bisconte 2017
From southern France’s Roussillon region and historic Château L’Esparrou, this special cuvée boasts a coveted Gilbert & Gaillard gold. Judges loved its “pleasant nose accented by dark fruits and spices with a touch of licorice.”
Château Terrebonne Coeur de Cuvée 2017
This “wonderful” pink hails from the heartland of rosé and an estate that’s won over 60 awards in 11 vintages – including gold for this special release. Starring old-vine Grenache and Syrah, it brims with juicy raspberry and complex wild herb notes.
Fleur du Mistral Rosé 2019
You’ll find some of the world’s loveliest rosé in southern France, thanks to a warm Mediterranean climate and the cooling Mistral wind. Inspired by this balance, Fleur de Mistral is a beautiful pink that brims with pure, red berry flavors.
Château Lestours Clocher 2015
Châteauneuf is more famous and commands the highest prices, but savvy fans know neighboring Vacqueyras produces equally fabulous (and more wallet-friendly) reds. This “sexy and deeply perfumed” example from the historic Arnoux clan proves the point.
Domaine du Mas Ensoleillé 2019
This acclaimed pink arrives from a top estate that has the “sunny” spirit of summer built right into its name. Made with old-vine Grenache and Syrah and night harvested to preserve the intense black currant flower, orange zest, and strawberry notes.
Moulin de Pontfract Rosé 2019
This elegant, pale-pink stunner hails from a 300-year-old domaine in the classic Provençal village of Correns (also home to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s much-talked-about venture). A super-stylish aperitif, filled with floral and citrus flavors.
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.
