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.

2018 Vintage : Ripeness

2018 Vintage : Ripeness

The grape harvest began on September 6th with the whites and the ripest reds, ending in late September. Spring has been completely atypical with hot and very humid conditions. As a result, the pressure of cryptogamic diseases has been particularly strong. Mildiou caused damage to the foliage and then to the bunches ... then we lost 30% of the grapes. Especially for the grape variety Grenache which is the most sensitive.

A very hot summer until September helped maintain a very good sanitary condition. The vines were very resistant to drought because they had few grapes and the maintenance of their foliage allowed to obtain a good maturity.
The CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE white is rich and marked by aromas of citrus fruits and white flesh fruits. The reds are soft and greedy with aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant. The tannins are silky and round.

New from the vintages

New from the vintages:
The fabulous CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE red vintage 2016: deep and dark red, the Nose is rich in fruit stone aromas. Very large and concentrated in the mouth, we find many aromas of black olive and plums. With silky and powerful tannins, it's a wine to discover!
CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE white 2017: this blend of the 6 grape varieties of the Appellation, provides aromas of anise, white flowers and fresh and crisp fruits, such as pear and peach. Surprising richness in the mouth with a beautiful length.
You will appreciate the bottles of the 2016 vintage in Côtes du Rhône Village red with its pleasing black fruit flavors and racy tannins. The 2017 is in the cellar at the maturing ...

In the Cellar

In the Cellar:
Fermentation of the 2018s went smoothly. The vintage is marked by beautiful maturities.
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 2017, which is still maturing in its large oak barrels (45hl), will be racked, blended and bottled in February-March 2019.

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