Welcome

Our estate was founded by Siffrein my great great-grandfather in 1880 and has since been passed down from generation to generation: Abel, Yves and then my father Claude worked hard to expand the estate and constantly improve the quality of the wines.

So, now I grow 5 ha (12.5 acres) of vines in the Côtes du Rhône Villages region and 15 ha (38 acres) in Châteauneuf-du-Pape with all the experience gained from my ancestors.

We have cultivated our vineyard using organic farming methods for more than 35 years and since 2012 the wines of Domaine de Saint Siffrein have been officially certified organic.

Here at the Domaine, traditional and modern techniques come together to bring you the fruit of our life’s passion.

2017 vintage: a small harvest but exceptional quality
The grape harvest began on 28 August (10 days ahead of 2016!) by the whites and the ripest reds, to finishing on 23 September.
2 reasons for the low quantity:

  • there were fewer grenache bunches than normal;
  • Spring was a succession of hot periods and cool, windy periods which caused a meant that the grenache failed to set all of its fruit, reducing the quantity still further.
Mourvèdre and Syrah, on the other hand, enjoyed the year’s weather with superb bunches of ripe grapes.
The vines were very resistant to drought because they had few grapes and the maintenance of their foliage made it possible to obtain a good maturity.
We are moving towards a vintage with great finesse.
White and Rosé are very aromatic, full of fruit.
In red, the colors are superb with round and fine tannins.

New from the vintages:
The traditional CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE Red 2015, of a bright red color, the nose is rich with black fruits, truffles and smoked herbs. Very rich on the palate, there is a lot of pepper in the finish. It is a powerful wine but the tannins are subtle. To discover!
The CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE white 2015: 100% Bourboulenc, harvested on October 1st with exceptional maturity... After 10 months of vinification and ageing in the 400 liters barrels...

CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE blanc

You will appreciate the vintage 2015 in Côtes du Rhône Red Village with its attractive fragrances of red fruits.

In the Cellar:
Fermentation of the 2017s went smoothly. The vintage looks fantastic.
Blending will come after the malolactic fermentation. The cold winter will allow the new wines to settle so that by next spring they're going to be very promising!
The CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE red 2016, which is still maturing in its large oak barrels (45hl), will be racked, blended and bottled in February-March 2018.

In the vines: Any dead vines are being pulled out. Their replacements will be planted in January...
