Plan de Dieu, Côtes du Rhône Villages, Hommage du Rhone 2018
100% certified Organic Wine.
This could well be the origin of the name Plan de Dieu, meaning God’s Plain. Since those days, the area has been planted with vines which now cover 1060 hectares at an altitude of 100 metres, and only a few patches of woodland remain dotted throughout the vineyards. Vines grow on a bed of red clay packed to a depth of 10 meters with a mass of smooth-rolled cobbles. Given this thick, stony foundation, the soil is sparse and yields little in the way of fruit, barely enough to produce one bottle of wine per plant. ”
Grape Varieties: Grenache – Syrah – Cinsault – Mourvèdre.
Tasting Notes: At first an intense pomegranate color with purplish reflections.Then, explosive nose with aromas of cooked fruits, along with some hints of fig.
The mouth is full-bodied and rich, the tannins are melted. Pretty length, all in finesse and elegance. Overall, the long finish is all about finesse and elegance.
Serve at 15-16°C. Open before serving.
