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.
Nice but not great
Not a bad wine, there are simply much better Rhone wines available for $15 or less.
Blends are the best
Finally got around to trying this wine today and came online to order some more only to find that it was sold out. I will need to be more diligent in the future.
So far this is my favorite red from Cameron Hughes and I am enjoying many! It opens up nicely and is dry and complex. I ordered 6 at the recommendation of a friend and I wish I had ordered a case.
Beautiful raspberry and cherry flavors with just a touch of earth and a hint of garrigue.
Dry & Delicious
678 was dry, mild, delicious. Had it with minestrone and fresh baked bread. It was very enjoyable. I'm sure I'll get some of the next offering. Fair value for sure.
Went well with beef. It was very good. I should have bought another.
Nice aroma. Concentrated flavor with hints of cherry and oak. Opened up nicely with a little time. Great value.
GSM- Granache Syrah Mourvedre. my go to French wine. Unless you're driving through the French countryside, you are not going to find a value like this. strength of $dollar, got to love it. was fortunate to buy 6 more bottles before sold out. hope Cam sources more #treasurehunt
A complex Cote Du Rhone at a great price
This wine was quite complex and each each new glass really improved. Very nice with beef!
GSM was great
Was excited to try this one. Nice to see the old world French wines on CH. Let it breath and opened up nicely.
