A tiny slice of land located next to its more famous Gigondas and Chateauneuf-du-Pape neighbors, Plan de Dieu is a village-level Côtes du Rhône AOC located in the southern Rhône. Viticulture here is ancient, and can be traced on parchment over 650 years back to 1362!
This 2500-acre piece of pre-Middle Age history is home to a vast plain of rocky clay soils that force the roots to work extra hard to produce small yields of the classic Rhône trio: Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Lot 721 is a 70/25/5 blend of the three, sourced from one of the handful of old growers in the area. It lives up to the region’s reputation for concentrated, rich wines – a big and bold Rhône red that’s produced from low-yield vineyards, harvested at optimal maturity for ripeness and intensity. A killer deal at a fraction of what you'd pay for its pricey siblings next door.
A nice red blend. Subtle and easy to drink.
Very easy wine to drink. Integrated flavors and smells, throughout. Balanced on the pallet and finish. Seamless throughout the whole experience. A great complement to spicy foods. Will improve with age.
Good Daily Drinker
A great balanced wine. Pairs with a good variety of foods, especially fattier foods. Good all-around blend.
Decanted for an hour and drank out of these 11" tall humongous wine glasses ! Just Fantastic ! This is an awesome blend and I will order some more.
Great French Wine at an Excellent Price!
This wine is great for everyday and priced excellent! It goes well with a cheese board and has a very smooth finish. I can't wait to order more, it's very enjoyable.
... fruit forward, dry, red. Nice everyday wine & a good dinner choice. Best let it breathe before drinking.
Another Great Daily Drinker....
Fabulous GSM, especially for the money. This (along with the current Field Blend Lot 674) are my wife and my favorite wines for everyday drinking. Incredible values and phenomenal reds. Cameron Hughes just continues to impress with his picks and commitment to bringing stellar wines to his customers at a fraction of their worth! I buy virtually all my wine from his company and why wouldn’t I? Clearly the best negociant in the business!
Fantastic French wine
Great value. Goes well with meat and pasta. Tasted the one in the club shipment and had to buy more.
First sip was a little rough but after it had time to breathe it was a good tasting wine. I am putting some aside to age more.
Perfect Table-side Companion
I wish I would have included more in my order! This is the perfect sippable wine to have around at the end of the day, and pairs well with almost any food. I love it
