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.
Service & food pairing suggestions:
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.
