A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre grapes grown on large alluvial terraces (plateau des Garrigues). The subsoil is a combination of blue clay, sandstone, and cobalt. The grapes are meticulously sorted, crushed, and destemmed before fermentation which lasts for approximately 3 weeks. The wine is then racked off before undergoing malolactic fermentation and spending 12 months in vat and 20% new French oak before bottling.
This lush red wine reveals expressive aromas of spices and cherry. The palate is elegant and well-balanced supported by a velvety structure. The Plan de Dieu is an ideal companion to cold cuts, gnocchis with olives, sautéed asparagus with smoked bacon, and chicken breast with aromatic herbs. Enjoy it at a temperature between 16 and 18°C, now or up to 5/6 years of age.
This particular terroir of round pebbles and alluvial terraces gives birth to a generous and spicy wine, typical of the Grenache grape variety. Pure pleasure with small game or ripened cheese.
