This particular terroir of round pebbles and alluvial terraces gives birth to a generous and spicy wine, typical of the Grenache grape variety. A pure pleasure with small game or ripened cheese
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 approximatively 3 weeks. The wine is then racked off before undergoing malolactic fermentation and spending up to 12 months in vat 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.
Saint Mappalicus is the saint patron of a town called Jonquières, situated at the heart of the Plan de Dieu appellation.
