Château Saint Jean, Plan de Dieu, Côtes du Rhône Villages 2015

Rhône

SOLD OUT - 2016 Vintage will arrive early January


We have a real find from the up-and-coming Plan de Dieu appellation in the southern Rhone for you, courtesy of the much respected Meffre family. Nestled in amongst the great communes of the area such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras, Plan de Dieu produces delicious, juicy reds from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. This excellent example is vibrant and complex and shows many of the characteristics associated with its more famous neighbours, but at a much lower price. A very well made and extremely tasty red.

About

The Plan de Dieu appellation was awarded Côtes du Rhône Villages status in 2005. It produces only red wines, which tend to be full bodied, with intense red berry flavours and herbal aromas reminiscent of the surrounding ‘garrigue’. Winemaking on the plain goes back to medieval times though intensive bombing and mining of the area during WWII set production back considerably. This is very much an appellation on the up, bought direct to you.
