The legend of the Plan de Dieu (‘Plain of God’) goes back to the Middle Ages: it was said that anyone who ventured into this area of thick scrubland, peopled by bandits, would do well to put their trust in God. Vines now thrive in this sector of the Côtes du Rhône, where clay soils are laced with pebbles. This 2018 is a vital expression of Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%). Aromas are alluringly concentrated: ripe raspberries and strawberries. Palate is full bodied, with satisfying depth of fruit, velvety texture, richness being perfectly balanced by freshness.
