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.
